TOWING AND TANDEMS

Want to get into flying? Or is the Mountain blown out? 
Towing and tandems are where many local pilots go to train, and thermal!

Chuck Woods is our local certified instructor and tow operator. He does tandem flights, lessons, and towing for visiting pilots.

Visiting pilots can get a towing check off with Chuck, or other special instruction, without the inconvenience of typical launch logistics.

ENCHANTED AIR PARAGLIDING

Whether getting a tandem flight, solo flight hours, or trying big XC, these grassland towing sites provide great access to thermalling, maneuvers, or learning the basics.

Within an  hour of Albuquerque, it is reasonable to tow in the morning, and fly another site in the afternoon.

Chuck does towing year round.

NM GRASSLAND XC

Not unlike the Corn Alps, or Florida's towing scene, towing here is one of the quickest ways to get up into the air in New Mexico.
Experienced pilots can do extended XC flights from Tome or the Rio Puerco.  Towing offers a taste of what NM Big Air has to offer, and is a great alternative on the weekends. (Towing is how Will Gadd flew the NM record PG flight)

Summer gets rowdy, but towing is a good solution to this problem.
