The courses in Spain take place at Aerodromo Ordis, which is approximately 10 minutes from Figueres, the birth place of Salvador Dali, and only 25 minutes from the Costa Brava coastline.
The location is easily accessible both by air, road and rail. The AP-7 motorway runs straight past Figueres making the French border less than 30 minutes to the north and Barcelona 2 hours to the south.
All courses start at 9.00am on Monday morning and end on Saturday afternoon. Students should therefore aim to arrive and depart on a Sunday.
Girona Airport is 1 hour to the south and is a Ryan Air hub. There are plenty of cheap flights available from a wide range of locations around Europe. There are train and bus services from the airport to Figueres. Girona Airport transfers cost €35 per person/per way.
Perpignan Airport is 75 minutes to the north of Figueres, just inside the French border. It is serviced by Ryan Air, Flybe and BMI Baby.
Perpignan Airport transfers cost €50 per person/per way. Barcelona International Airport is 2 hours to the south and has a very good train connection which runs to Figueres, 10 minutes from Aerodromo Ordis. Collections from Figueres train station cost €10 per person/per way.
If hiring a car from Girona Airport we recommend the AP-7 Toll road north towards Figueres.
Leave the AP-7 just south of Figueres at Junction 4. After going through the toll booth take the first right hand exit at the round about along the GIV-5128 sign posted Olot, Besalu or Navata. Follow this road for approximately 5 minutes going straight over every round about until you reach a T junction. This is the N-260 and at this point you should turn right and drive approximately 500m before turning right again at Kilometer marker '45', sign posted 'Aeroclub Ordis' on a yellow background. If you get to 'Mas Pau' you have gone 2 kilometers too far.
There is on site accommodation which is very convenient. The price includes en suite rooms, breakfast, use of the cafe facilities and wireless internet.
