Paragliding in Madeira is a good tip for a great vacation adventure. The island always has an average of 330 days a year of good flying weather. In conjunction with a wide variety of takeoff and landing places, uniform wind conditions and the unique topography, Madeira island has the ideal conditions for this sport. Training takes place on the island, but the license given is only recognized in Portugal. Individual paragliding at Hartmut Peters paragliding school is only permitted for certificate holders but, you may take flight with an "accompanied" flight pilot.
