Testimonies from our students


  • Marko’s Yelapa SIV

    SIV Course
    Marko’s Yelapa SIV course was an immersive paragliding experience in a beautiful holiday setting. The combination of extensive pre and post-flight briefings and excellent in-flight communication provides the best opportunity to learn and improve. The days are balanced out by the amazing beach setting of Yelapa. I would absolutely recommend this course and plan on taking it again in the future.

  • I couldn't be more grateful to Marco

    Beginner course

    As an alpinist, I learned how important are details. Flying is another amazing activity like alpinism, to enjoy it 100% you need to learn how to stay safe. Marco is a great teacher because he doesn't only teach you the rules but why these rules exist, why they are important, and why they work. Having this global understanding of what it means to fly was the most amazing and unexpected part of this program. I couldn't be more grateful to Marco for having introduced me to this new world.

  • Flying thermals with your

    Thermaling course

    "I had been flying a few years with other schools before I met Marko. I wanted to learn to fly in thermals. The way he brings over his knowledge is truly unique!! A very motivated, concerned, enthusiastic, calm, down-to-earth approach. Technically substantiated but practically mastered courses. And flying thermals with your instructor hanging right above or next to you? Never knew any instructor doing this, but this is what makes the difference.... "

    Yann Bastaans, Belgian pilot

  • It was a great course

    SIV Course

    "It was a great course... helped me identify weaknesses and strengths. You get to know not just your glider but yourself, and you need both to fly better and to perform all maneuvers. I had attended a previous basic SIV and the difference is huge. All these advanced maneuvers require the instructor to transmit patience and dedication and I think Marko nailed it. So thank you Marko and Flumen!"

  • Marko's Cross Country course

    XC Course

    I recently took Marko's Cross Country course and it was fantastic! I learned so much about understanding weather charts, reading the local winds, planning a cross-country flight, and flying more efficiently to go further. I like the way Marko coaches. As he assesses how his students fly, he gives simple instructions for how we can fly better or launch better or land better or whatever. Every student on our course that applied themselves improved greatly. I would recommend Marko and Flumen to anyone looking to improve their skills as a paraglider pilot. He gives great tandem flights too!

  • An excellent experience to be able to fly with Marco

    It has been an excellent experience to be able to fly with Marco. He is a very knowledgeable and resourceful paragliding instructor and I learned a lot from him. Besides that, he is very easy to communicate with, works with an excellent team is very professional. I could not recommend Flumen and Marco more, you will be in good hands. Also, Valle de Bravo is a very nice area to fly and stay as well.
