Fancy desert racing on hang gliders? The Santa Cruz Flats Race takes place in Arizona, USA from 15 September 2019.
“The Francisco Grande Golf Resort is hosting us for the 12th year. The resort allows us to park fully assembled gliders in the green grass under the shade of many trees just adjacent to the “tower” where all of our rooms are. You can sit in the comfort of your balcony and see all the gliders below“.

The Moyes Team Challenge aims to introduce hang glider pilots to flying the Forbes flatlands in Spring conditions, under the guidance of an experienced team leader.
Tasks will be set and pilots will learn about weather conditions, instruments and more. The evenings will be spent reinforcing that knowledge around a good ole Aussie barbie.
It costs $150 to enter. It’s an aerotow comp and tows are an additional $30 each. There is the possibility for pilots to gain their aerotow rating during the event.
To apply, email Vicki, firstname.lastname@example.org and include, your name, HGFA#, Hours, Glider, Experience.
