The Pan American Championships is an aerotow hang gliding competition set to take place in Big Spring, Texas – billed by organisers as “the finest cross-country hang gliding competition site in the World”  – in August 2020.

Organisers say Big Spring is synonymous with big tasks, smooth thermals, unrestricted landing areas, easy retrieves, consistent 1pm cumulus development, air-conditioned HQ, a hangar for set-up and free water and ice cream. And records, of course.

Pilots must be at least temporary USHPA members to take part in the competition, and must hold the equivalent of IPPI5 rating, and be aerotow proficient.

Entry fees are $550 per pilot plus tow fees of $900 (for 11 – 12 days).
