 General information
GPS coordinates : take off : 32°50'22" (32.8397)S; 68°56'0" (68.9336)W - Elevation : 1640 m.
landing : 32°51'45" (32.8626)S; 68°55'34" (68.9263)W - Elevation : 1000 m.
Take off :


The take off has 270°, easiest with easterly winds.
Landing :


You can not see the landing from the take off, it is big. Two landing areas, one large and circular belonging to club cerro arco, or the road.
Going there :


Getting up the mountain is only possible using a 4*4. Contact Horacio +54(0)2616506155 (mob) Leo Jury +54 2615058803 who at the time of writing could offer transportation up the mountain for 30 pesos per trip.
Comments :


There are two clubs using Cerro Arco. One has a clubhouse with large circular grassy landing area (club Cerro Arco), clubhouse, parking area, bar and BBQ.
Weather hazards :


Mendoza has a weather condition called Zonda (similar to Foic in the Swiss alps), a turbulent wind system which usually occurs in winter when it's snowing in the andes to the west.

Never fly in these conditions at any time in the day. As always consult with local pilots before flying.

The following three days after a Zonda are generally excellent, with good themals and southerly winds.

Summer is generally excellent for thermals, with winter being more tranquil.
