VENTURADA, Motor Gliding in Madrid
The most beautiful scenario in just half an hour away from Madrid
The best about motor gliding is discovering the scenarios from the sky, and how surprisingly better things are seen from up above. This is what Venturada’s environment offers. Around the flying area we have ‘La Pedriza’ and ‘La Cabrera’; and the ‘Vellón’, ‘Santillana’ and ‘El Atazar’ dams, the latter being very impressive and big when viewed from the sky. During spring time, the nature’s green tones are spectacular and, because it’s up north, it is like that until mid-summer. In autumn, you can see the forests turn into ochre tones and occasionally winter gives us beautiful snowed scenarios that will make it a memorable experience…
You can get easily to the field from where we’re flying taking from Madrid the A1 highway. At Km 50, change to ‘Guadalix de la Sierra’ direction. After an opened curve to the right and in the beginning of a second opened curve to the left, you’ll see the entrance to the runway on the right side of the road.
It’s easy to recognize because you can distinguish a hilly dirt runway that we’ll use for take-offs. You’ll also see windsocks, like in the airports, and a little iron sheet hangar.
