About us

ZERO GRAVITY PARAGLIDING is the name of our company, and it is also the name of our Paragliding School in Algodonales since 2002.

Years ago, when Spain and Algodonales started to become a popular destination for paraglider pilots, especially during the winter and autumn seasons, we thought it could be a good idea to offer our services to them. So, we created this website called ZERO GRAVITY  PARAGLIDING SPAIN.

Nowadays, we are an International Paragliding School and Flight Centre which provides hundreds of visitor pilots all they need to enjoy their holidays in Spain.

Why Flying by Locals?

We are in Spain, and we are Spanish guys in love with these mountains and proud of the place we live. Some foreign paragliding companies come here only for the winter season, but we learned to fly here, we are made here, and we know our place.

Of course, we know the flying sites and the sky, but we also know the best places to eat tapas and where to celebrate a fantastic flying day with an ice-cold beer.

Our team: Professional instructors

We have put together our knowledge and experience to build up a team of professional paragliding instructors who provide excellent service for our clients. We all come to work every day because we love what we do… and we love flying.


In Andalucia, in the south of Spain, we have the sunniest weather in Europe year-round, which makes this the best place to paraglide. This is our real-time statistics about the days we can fly.

Our Guarantee

Our paragliding school is recognized by several of the most important aerial federations and associations, which means that we satisfy the necessary requirements to be memberships. This is the guarantee for our students and pilots that they are in good hands.

Our paragliding school belong to the Spanish Aerial Federation (RFAE), and it is recognized as an official paragliding school in Spain.
Of course, as members of RFAE, we are integrated in the International Aerial Federation, so we can provide internationally recognized rating cards (IPPI cards) to the PG Pilots.
We are members of the Association of Paragliding Pilots and Instructors. APPI is an international network of schools and flight centres all around the World. The APPI Educational System is one of the best and more complete.
Our school is recognized by the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association(BHPA), which means that we satisfy all the necessary requirements for teaching and qualify students with the BHPA educational system.

Our Services

All that you need to enjoy your visit to Algodonales

Our school is located at the main central square of Algodonales, and we offer to our clients all that they need to enjoy their holidays.

  • Paragliding Shop at Algodonales
  • Parachute Reserve re-pack service
  • Paragliding Workshops
  • Accommodation for pilots


We are dealers of different paragliding brands (Gin, Sol, Windtech, Axis, Sup Air,...) that we sell in our shop.

Our Team

  • Jose Ramon Perez

    Chief Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. XC Pilot. Flying since 1991. >> At first Jose was a civil engineer… but he was also a paragliding pilot fully motivated to become an instructor. He spent a long time flying in competitions. Eventually, he fulfilled his dream of turning his passion into his job and created his own paragliding school.

  • Javier Garcia

    Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. XC Pilot. Flying since 2001. >> In addition to paragliding, Javi loves surfing, reading, cats and CrossFit. He has many interests and can't say which of his two jobs he enjoys more: being a firefighter or being a paragliding instructor. He has been a member of the Zero Gravity team since the very beginning.

  • Luisma

    Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. Flying since 2009. >> Luisma was one of our students and it seems we did a good job teaching him to fly because some years later he became one of our instructors!

  • Iván Sánchez

    Paragliding Instructor. Tandem pilot. Flying since 2015. >> Iván is the youngest instructor of our crew… but this doesn’t mean that the other members are old guys at all… ok? His favourite toy is a paraglider, but he also loves the electric guitar & drums… so, his neighbours are very happy when he goes flying.
