The Telluride Air Force is a hang gliding and paragliding group providing oversight and safety-focused regulation in Telluride, Colorado USA.

Gold Hill launch is a high altitude mountain slope at 3735 meters (12,250ft) ASL. Three designated valley landing zones at 2667 meters (8750ft) ASL are within nominal glide range, a wetlands known as the Pearl Property, a long sporadically forested “Open Space Valley Floor,” and finally within town limits the  Telluride Town Park.

A complex and rapidly changing atmospheric environment require visiting pilots, without exception, to fly with supervisory oversight of a Telluride Air Force member holding “guide pilot” status.

    Hi, my name is Mike.

    I live in NJ and I’ll be on a week long ski trip to Telluride, starting this Saturday.
    Besides skiing I also paraglide and would like to take the opportunity to fly in Telluride.
    I hold a P3 rating. I learned it in the Alps and have been mainly flying in the North East for the last 17 years.

    Besides following the requirements listed on the web site, what is the best way to hook up with you?

    — Mike

      Post on the Chat Box on the right of website pages. Leave your contact info. Also check for anyone posting they might try to fly, as pilots sometimes post before they go.
