Aero Towing tips.


This is a pic of a hang glider being towed by a Dragon fly tug-plane. The Dragon fly is purpose built for the aero-towing of hang gliders.

Tip 1.

Here is a set-up for the most popular aero towing release system. It is a simple single attachment point (To the pilot only) V-bridle tow attachment with a barrel release. It has proved most popular in the world with 99% of pilots in the world hang gliding aero-towing competitions using this set-up. It allows for quick hook-in making for fast turn-around times. In organised aero-towing comps more than a 100 pilots can be towed up within an hour.
