Ever fly in Durango, CO?

Postby dschuhl » Fri Mar 29, 2013 8:54 am

Has anyone ever flown in the Durango area or have a contact for other pilots in the area? I've seen posts for the Falls Creek Launch but that's it.

I was there for a couple of days a few years back. While at a park on the S.E. edge of town, a paraglider pilot cornered me after spotting my glider on my van and described a launch just above us. He talked of others nearby, so I think there is plenty of opportunity there.

There are three main sites around Durango. Falls Creek, Mancos, and Cedar Ridge down by Aztec NM. Im not sure if the Mancos rd or falls creek is open yet. Falls creek is a bit of a hike if your have a H.G but I know people who do it. Send me a private message and I can give you more info. Are you P.G or H.G pilot? When are you planning on being in the area?

Not much flying in the winter but the summer flying can be good!
