Location:

Olympus with its highest peak Mytikas – 2.918 m – is the highest mountain range in Greece and the famous home of the Greek Gods. It is located directly next to the Aegean Sea with its long coast lines and sandy beaches.
Our flying area – with more than 15 take off’s – covers the three mountains Pieria, Olympus and Kissavos that form a longer range parallel to the sea separated by impressive valleys.
These mountains protect our area throughout the year from strong meteorological winds so developing their own local wind systems which we use for flying.
The southern region typically offers fantastic XC and thermalling opportunities. Pilots use the flatland of Thessaly for FAI triangles or going on a XC back to the beach.
The northern area towards the sea typically offers smoother conditions, which are also ideal to experience first thermal flights and landings on the beach.

 

Olympic Wings can arrange and book for you accommodation and transfers for the duration of your visit and your participation to the course.
