The warm flying season is almost over, and Dave and I are organizing an escape from the cold this winter. Right now, we’re putting together a list of people who would like to attend a Maneuvers, or SIV clinic, this winter in Mexico. If you’ve never heard of or seen SIV, check out the video below:

  • Who?

    Anyone who knows how to launch and land a glider can attend this course. It will be a tow up over water, with a large beach landing. There are 2 course variants, Beginner and Advanced. The instructor will tailor YOUR experience for your goals.

  • Price

    1200-1400 USD – This includes everything except airfare to and from Mexico. Once you arrive at the airport, we take care of everything. This price may change a bit, but we’ll zero in on an exact figure once we determine interest.

  • Gear

    You only need to bring your glider. If you don’t have a glider, we’ll take care of that for you. If you have a free flight harness with reserve, you are welcome to use that.

  • What is included in the price?

    Everything except airfare. Once you land in Mexico, we take care of ground travel, lodging, food, and the training clinic itself. Alcohol is NOT included.

  • Where

    Yelapa Mexico. Average winter temperature is 75

  • When

    Generally, the class will be Tues-Wed-Thurs. Our travel schedule will be : Arrive in Yelapa on Monday, 3 days for training, and travel home Friday. The classes will be scheduled throughout the winter, as interest necessitates.

  • Big Ears
  • Pitch Pendulum
  • Asymmetric Collapse
  • Frontal Collapse
