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,

    Just want to thank everyone here in Telluride for having us here to fly this amazing arena! Couldn’t have asked for better folks and conditions the last couple of weeks to watch the leaves change colors with in the San Juans from the sky! Thanks Neal for throwing this informal gathering and bringing us here to fly. What a hoot!
