The Azores

Flight Culture has always been about doing something different, something extraordinary and taking you to places you’ve never been. When we had to cancel Baja, we knew we had to come up with something pretty special.

So, in March we’ll be visiting the Azores, flying on the island of Sao Miguel and exploring some of their 17 flying sites.

The Azores are an archipelago in the mid-Atlantic and are characterised by dramatic landscapes, fishing villages, green pastures and hedgerows of blue hydrangeas. Green, volcanic and remote, the islands were first settled in the 15th century. The Azores are formed from some of the tallest mountains on the planet, measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean to their peaks.

The flying

We’ll be flying a mixture of coastal and inland sites and most are fairly easy with big take-offs and landings.

We’ll be there for 9 days and we probably will get some non-flyable periods which will be an opportunity to scuba dive on some epic walls, fish, go canyoning, cycling, kayaking and swimming in thermal pools.


We’ll be staying in an lovely old house and you’ll get breakfast prepared for you as well as dinner on 2 nights. We’ll also provide airport transfers and all island transport.


It will start on March 11th (arrival day) and finish on the 20th (departure day). There are only 6 places on the trip (1 has already gone) and it’ll be supported by 2 instructors.



The cost for the trip is £830 for a private room and £740 for a shared room and if you wish to come with a non-flying partner, the cost will be £510 for them (based on you sharing a room).

Currently flights are £230 – £290 return.
