Hombres Pajaro 2017

The 2017 Hombres Pájaro hang glider competition will take place between 21-28 January 2017 at Santa Elena, Colombia.

The competition is FAI category 2, and launch will be the Piedechinche site, 80km south of the famous Roldanillo.

This launch is great as we have plenty of room for gliders, it is 1,180m above the valley and the wind blows in all day long (as opposed to Roldanillo which has a afternoon tailwind which sometimes doesn’t allow us to fly although the day may be classic)

It is important to mention that we have the most spectacular conditions to fly and compete in hang gliders here in the Cauca Valley, the conditions are always good, no problems with strong winds or strong turbulence, we have a huge valley full of large and easy landing areas.

We normally have tasks in the 100km average length for the Open class and 40/50km for the Sport class.

The hotel has air-conditioned rooms, hot water, cable TV with flat-screen TVs in each room and the cost is only approx US$20 a night per person, which includes a huge breakfast.  You can easily have a good lunch and dinner for US$10 a day.
