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

We have many launch sites in both states. We conduct platform truck towing (HG) from the Las Cruces city airport, pay-in towing from the Evergreen Turf farms near Santa Teresa, NM and pay-out towing on a highway somewhere in southern NM.

Our main flying site is Dry Canyon which is just east of Alamogordo. It includes a 5 acre LZ courtesy of the City of Alamogordo.

The RGSA is a chapter member (#41) of the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association.  We carry 3rd party liability insurance provided by USHPA to protect our flying sites.


Full (pilots only) $25 -- Associate (non-pilots) $15 -- Dual RGSA and Sandia Soaring Association $75

Donations are appreciated.  They will help with our insurance costs.
