During our Slovenia season we offer a limited number of residential places for pilots wanting to stay for a longer period of up to three months.


They suit people whom;

    - Just want to hang out in the Alps all summer without the expense of a hotel or the damp of a tent?
  1. - Want to learn more about the area in detail to aid with future trips?
  2. - Want to further their XC skills getting continual advice from xTc and our staff?
  3. - Maybe you want to crack the 100km or even 200km?

The venue is Slovenia with Sorica as our base. From here we can access all the major flying sites in under 60 minutes with the primary ones being around 30 minutes away (or 5 minutes for the Sorica launch).


The principle is you stay in the xTc house, sharing with a few other like-minded individuals, and then go out daily with the regular clients of xTc. This allows you the lower cost option of both the trip as well as not having to eat in restaurants each day, having access to a kitchen in the house for your daily meals. But it also allows you the opportunity to fly day after day in one of the best playgrounds in Europe.


The season is being led by Brett Janaway, lead guide of xTc Paragliding. Also in attendance will be Mike Agnew as Fly guide and a few other retrieve drivers.


In 2013 we managed to get the residents to distances in excess of 200km, with 150km+ regularly featuring. Flying was consistently improved by all and personal bests are almost guaranteed.


The costs vary according to the length of your stay but include accommodation, transport throughout, guiding, retrieves etc.


Costs (standard trip price is £6300!)
Weeks 1 to 4 of your stay = £375 weekly
Weeks 5 to 8 of your stay = £295 weekly
Weeks 9+ of your stay = £260 weekly


NOTE: There is a minimum 3 weeks commitment to come on the residential weeks. The reducing scale is to recognize the reducing workload for our staff. A deposit of £100 weekly is required on booking. The balance is payable monthly in advance during your stay.
