FLY IN COLOMBIA

The Colombian tropical climate is influenced by trade winds which makes it consistent.

One of the most important flying areas is the Cauca Valley, which is a paradise for free flight.

It is not just about super conditions, but also about the nice people and their culture in this special place. 

The agricultural Valle de Cauca with its unfenced farmland and extensive road network creates a retrieve system that invites you to make the most of the go-anywhere conditions.

The Cauca Valley is a political region as well as a geographical feature.

It is located in the west of Colombia, in the middle of a chain of tropical mountains and hills that run the length of the country.

The topography of the valley makes it perfect for flying with interesting routes for every level pilot.

With very special conditions it is flyable all the day, the pilot has the chance to practice and improve his skills in thermalling and Cross country flights with soft and effective thermals.

In the afternoon the thermals and the soft valley wind are combined for a pleasure flight. The restitution are coming with the sunset - just perfect conditions to relax.

TAKE OFFS

The flying site is located in Santa Elena and will be one of our stops for a few days.

 

The location offers nice hike & fly possibilities. From the hostel right next to the landing zone to the take off it take us around 15 minutes by car and around 1h30min by hike. 

Besides this Piedechinche is well known for its soft and friendly conditions for XC.
