RGSA logo

The Rio Grande Soaring Association is dedicated to promoting and preserving the sport of hang gliding and paragliding in southern New Mexico and western Texas.

Our main flying sites are Dry Canyon in Alamogordo NM and Franklin Mountains State Park in El Paso, TX.  The RGSA cooperates with the City of Alamogordo, the Lincoln National Forest, and Franklin Mountains State Park of El Paso, TX to keep our sites open.

The RGSA is chapter #41 of the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA). We carry site insurance provided by USHPA to protect our flying sites.

The RGSA welcomes everyone to get involved in our sport. Club membership is open to the public.  We offer full membership (for pilots), dual membership (for members of other USHPA clubs), and associate membership (for non-pilots). Please use our membership page to get more information.
