Flight Tips

MAIN FLYING ROUTES OF VALLE DE BRAVO

By Patricia García de Letona with English translation help and some comments by Josh Cohn

Below are descriptions of the main flying routes around Valle de Bravo, based on the most typical days of the area during the cross-flying season (October to May). Heights are only recommendations. Remember to make your decisions based on what is happening on the day and based on your knowledge. If you are a very new pilot I recommend that you fly along with more advanced pilots who can advise you not to risk your safety. These recommendations are mainly for paraglider pilots; if you fly a hang glider you will find some useful information, but be sure to talk to a local hang glider pilot who can advise you on these routes, and especially on the  landing options. I hope this information serves you and I wish you good flights!!!
