Comments :
This area was the most flown by pilots of Quito, but each time fewer pilots flying here, the reason for this is that over time have been populating many of the landings alternative existed for the main landing there to have a good level approach to land short, much more with new gliders that have improved glide and speed, so not recommended for novice pilots flying here
Weather hazards :

The high-performance gliders can react violently by altitude takeoff
There is the possibility of formation of storm clouds mostly south of departure
In the months of July August and September can have wind gusts of more than 40kmh
Flight regulation :

Restricted to novice drivers, only with their instructors by the official landing distance,
Mandatory use of parachute and helmet
