The climate is temperate and dry, with an average temperature of 18 ° C and an average relative humidity of 56%. The rainy season is between November and March.


Coordinates: 13 ° 12'19.30 "S 74 ° 14'30.99" W

Coordinates: 13 ° 10'59.25 "S 74 ° 13'30.66" W

It is located in the southern part of the city in the Quicapata Community Sports Complex (District of Carmen Alto).


The tasks will be carried out in the Ayacucho valley; on the plateau and in the south, south east or south west of the city, according to the weather forecasts and the conditions of those days.

These areas are characterized by wide valleys, plateaus up to 4200 meters above sea level and green pampas. It is recommended to land near a town or road since some roads are difficult to access. Therefore, the waypoints have been located in the vicinity of the routes that facilitate the transportation back to the city.

Tasks are expected between 40 and 70 km.


The thermal conditions are quite manageable and controllable in this area, being thermal up to +4 or +5 m / s. On a good day, it is possible to reach cloud base between 5000 and 5500 m.

It is advisable to acclimatize before flight days and, if you consider necessary, have an oxygen system.


Ayacucho has an airport with commercial activities. However, these do not interfere with this competition. Also, the control tower will keep abreast of our schedules and activities to have better coordination and maintain the safety of the case.
