La Muela

Today is was time to visit a small site 1 hr to the NE of Madrid. The Televsion crew was coming and we were going to have some fun. Once arrving at takeoff I was amazed on how great this place was. This is a perfect training site short retrieve to the LZ and takeoffs in every direction. There is also training hills in every direction at the bottom of take off. Many people come here after work and fly all afternoon untill 9pm in summer time. The record is a mere 220kms but there is much more potential to be had from this site. It is used a lot by paragliders as it is perfect for takingoff and landing in smoothe conditions. Here is a short video of todays flying.
