Big Mountain Flying

For over 15 years, Damien Mitchell has been guiding tours in Valle de Bravo. He is an USHPA Advanced Instructor with over 10k flights. Originally from Utah, Damien has been flying for over 20-years.

We offer four types of flying packages – a Morning Session, an Afternoon Session, an All-Day Session, and an a Weekly Session. Staying longer, or have a larger group? Email me about XC, team flying, thermalling, and trips to the lake LZ. 

Stunning Scenery

This is big mountain flying at its best. Beautiful views from above launch. See the famous El Penon (The Rock) - the remains of ancient volcano plug.

Enjoy the Valley

Fly in the "Fishbowl" - a ring of mountains with an easy glide to the landing zone. Take a sledder or test your chops at thermalling or ridge soaring.

Pickup & Dropoff

Let us shuttle you from Valle de Bravo to launch and from the LZ back to Valle de Bravo.

Food and drinks

Bring your wallet. You will be hungry. Enjoy any of the four eating areas at the landing zone (Piano). Have pizza at Hanger 5. Hamburger's at Cici's. Or, tacos at the two taco stands.
