The flying site
is located east side of city mountain area that wide spread until east ocean of Philippines. We have 2 take off in that area. Usually fly on 1st take off near the cement road for tandem flying and cross-country. And another take off is for beginner for the reason of easy slope and wider landing space. The height of take off is 380 meters sea level.
is good during wet season(Habagat). And very good condition when wind is from west. Seldom we have wind from south. But still have good strong thermal to fly up to the cloud.

Our meeting place
is Biker’s cafe on C6 road that is on the way to Timberland. Owner of Biker’s cafe always welcome pilots and tandem passengers. And food serving is great and good price. We usually having beers after flying.
