I see that it is snowing in CO but here the flying is great. I did 2 soaring flights at Tapalpa and videos are better than words. Let me know if you can join me here.
Ivan just sent me his videos from this years trips.
The jet stream is right over Colorado now and its strong winds make flying unlikely.
Compare this with the great conditions in Tapalpa, Mexico. It 40 degrees warmer and no jet stream!
Still a few spots available for Mexico P2 January 22-29—-6 pilots already sent deposits— and 3 pilots already sent deposits—Mexico P3 January 29—February 5. Same low price as past years $1,500.
Recommended flight price has dropped also.
Parasoft has been guiding pilots to Mexico in January since 1990. Granger and Dixon White first took the paraglider pilots to Valle de Bravo. In 1996 we discovered that Iguala had more vertical, no crowds and softer air. We brought groups there for many years although there was only one launch site.
In 2002 we discovered World Class Tapalpa with 4 other sites close by. With big launch and landing areas this is the best in Mexico! Tapalpa is a 2,500′ verticel drive-up site located one hour from the Guadalajara airport. To prepare for the 2004 World Cup Competition, a restaurant and bar were added.
Our trips include 6 days of flying. We see these as both a fun flying vacation and learning experience. To guide our clients well, we limit each group to 10 clients and separate them into 3 different weeks based on their experience and goals: P2, P3 and P4.
Tapalpa: It’s easterly face heats early in the day and guarantees for long flights each time—at least 20 minutes! With our driver and drive up access, pilots have enjoyed five flights in one day—that’s 12,000′ vertical in one day! We fly all six days in a single course.
We pick you up at the Guadalajara International airport on Sundays in our air-conditioned 4-wheel drive truck. Recommended Flight. Bring your shorts and lots of sun cream because the weather is great. We include single rooms at a comfortable hotel below in Sayula near the l.z Breakfast and site fees included. $1,500 for 1 week or $2,500 for 2.
