Drone Flying Experience in Periana Southern Spain
The trip is hosted by Steve Lowery, a well-known British photographer, and qualified drone pilot. Steve has been bringing clients to the south of Spain for several years for photography holidays, knows the area well and speaks fluent Spanish.
Each morning and afternoon we will visit an outstanding area of natural beauty, in order to fly our drones. All have been carefully selected by Steve. Some previous drone flying experience will be helpful, but not essential. Equally, there is plenty here to excite and interest the expert drone pilot.

For tours outside of the UK, we will select a recommended flight which will depart from a London airport to the destination. In most cases (unless stated otherwise), the tour leaders will greet you at the destination airport from this flight and return you to the airport at the end of the tour.
Please DO NOT book your flights until advised to do so by the office. Tours have to become viable before we select the recommended flight.
Once a tour has enough bookings to make it viable, you will receive an email to alert you that the recommended flights have been uploaded to your client area on the website.
You are welcome to make alternative travel arrangements. If doing so, please ensure you are at the destination airport for the arrival time of the recommended flight to ensure you can take the transfer to the hotel. Alternatively, you can arrange your own transfers and meet the group at the hotel on the first night.
