Yes Mike, no perfect place I would say, but here in the Canaries at least we fly almost every day.
I don´t do many acro tricks but this place is more than enough for what I do.
I had an accident few months ago but I´m back in the clouds now. I made a short video about some flights I have done here. It ends with me crashing so it has no direct link from my site, but you guys can watch it in order to see what YOU could do around here.
Sorry about the stupid titles, it was only for me and my friends

I guess after looking further into my own question>its become clear that there will be no ideal all year round place,afterall,i guess the other part of flying is the exploring!travel is great,i still think one day I do wish to live by a lake with a tow boat,maybe thats the answer to getting quick altitude&practice!?!
Happy new year everyone,let 08 be the big one!!!

You can find site info here http://flyincanarias.com/ingles/mapsing.html
Normally we fly with over 20 k wind and climb a bit, but the take off heights ara as follow 70, 150, 170, 260, 750 and 1500 mts, the best places for maneuvers you get around 300 mts over the sea.

Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands is a good place for training all year round, you find more info and videos here www.flyincanarias.com , I just uploaded few more.
You can contact me through this site and ask me whatever you need.

Definitely, I agree with u Madeira is pretty good, u can check these pictures.
They were taken last year during a christmas time. It was possible to fly there almost every day.
The best way how to get there is from Germany, here u can get very cheap air ticket, around 150Eur ;-)

Hey guys!!

Madeira Island is probably a good choice to fly all year. From what I was told from local pilots it's possible to fly around 300 days per year. And don't worry that the other 65 you'll find something cool to do or hang out with ;)

In wintertime this place is definitely Iquique. I don't believe that there is all year round good place for training in Europe. However, if you find one, don't hesitate to share with us! :-)
South of Spain, Greek, Türkey, Canary Islands, Madeira should be nice for flying now, but I don't know about the specific places.

OK, lets make it a bit more specific... I was about to ask similar question: There must be a place, where an acro pilot does the hours and hours of training. It cannot be a "fly-drive-fly" or a "Fly-go by cablecar-fly" site. It needs to be a site with constant breeze where you can stay in the air all day long (top)landing just for a snack and a pee :-)
Is there, in Europe, such a place for winter training???
Talking about Spain, what particular sites do you recommend?

I would probably go to lake atitlan in guatemala.. fly over water all year round, very very cheap... amazing landscape and always someone to get you out of the water... :) email me if interested, tomdedo@hotmail.com

Although I've never been there (for fyling) I'd say Spain!
Every Acro Pilot I know goes to Spain for at least a few months during the winter time...

I think the flying conditions are nearly perfect all year long!
