Camp Bassano 2024

With the Dolomites to the north and flatlands to the south, the micro-climate around Monte Grappa offers superb opportunities for paragliding.

For the fifth year, we are running XC-weeks for pilots who want to develop their thermal and cross country flying. The camp is suitable for pilots who manages taking off from mountains, have some experience in thermal flying and landing in varying conditions. Some experience from XC- or distance flying is a plus.

Our base is in the village of Semonzo del Grappa and to offer the highest quality we keep the groups at maximum seven pilots.

We set daily tasks based on what the day has to offer and we go to different take-offs in the area depending on the level of the group and the weather. We have daily briefings, before and after the flights, and we build on with theory sessions if required.

In this year's Camp Bassano, we run three groups during three weeks and you are welcome to join one, two or all three weeks.
