Take refuge from the harsh winter weather and enjoy some of the best flying of your life. Perfect weather, phenomenal soaring, great food and friendly people. Colima is a world renowned flying site that few people get the opportunity to visit. It avoids the dreaded swarms of pilots found in Valle de Bravo, leaving us with the sky all to ourselves. Newly-certified P2 pilots all the way up to experienced cross country pilots are enchanted by this magical place. Regardless of your experience level, you will come away from this trip with new personal bests in the air. Not to mention slightly more humble on the ground as you encounter Mexican hospitality in its purest form.
Colima offers the widest and smoothest thermals you’ll likely ever encounter. Daily conditions are consistently soarable and by midday you’re likely to find yourself skied out over launch. It’s a great opportunity for newer pilots to hone-in their thermaling skills and maybe even try their first cross country flight. For more experienced pilots, Colima offers XC routes up valley towards the breathtaking Colima Volcano.
We wrap up the trip with a visit to San Marcos if the weather looks good for it. The glass off potential at this site is off the charts. It’s unlikely that you’ll ever find smoother, more widespread lift than you will on a typical evening at San Marcos.
We’re proud to offer lodging that meets the standards that we’re accustomed to back home. The hotel we’ll be staying in is every bit what you hope for when you think “Mexican vacation”. The facilities are all modern, wifi is complementary, and the rooms offer everything you need after a long day of flying. Within close proximity to the restaurant there are incredible food options all over town, including the best tacos in Mexico!
All you need to do is sign up, book your flight, and we’ll handle the rest. Your fee covers all transportation, accomodation and flight retrievals. The trip runs Sunday to Sunday with six full days of flying. From the airport in Guadalajara we travel together by private van to our accomodation nearby the flying site. Throughout the week you’ll enjoy great flying midday and plenty of R&R in the mornings and evenings. We’ll have you back at the airport the following Sunday, wondering where the week went.
