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

Telluride’s 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.

    Hello Telluride Air Force-

    I’m a H3 pilot with 20 years experience at many sites. Should be 4 by now but have to take the written.
    Driving from LA to Chicago this week and would like to fly Telluride.
    Who so I speak with to organize flying at your site?

    Kind Regards,
