NOTAMS:

PLEASE NOTIFY US PRIOR TO ARRIVAL:

GIVE US A CALL !   At WSC we are enjoying servicing a growing number of private owners choosing to fly with us. This increased demand is creating a greater challenge for our mountain tow operations.

We are asking all pilots to contact WSC either by email: info@williamssoaring.com, or by
Telephone (530) 473-5600, or post on Williams Today, forum to let us know that you will want a tow.

We would appreciate as much notice as possible but letting us know as you leave the house will be helpful in planning our tow pilot staffing.

DOUBLE TOWS:

On mountain days, we have found great benefit in double tows.Dual Tow 5F and G3: Photo by:Tom Jue

  • Double tows greatly reduce time waiting for a tow.
  • Double tows allow two pilots to explore lift early in the day, increasing the chance of staying up.
  • Double tows are directly responsible for our ability to hold down our aero tow rates.

Pilots are encouraged to participate in the double tow program. Double tows will be given priority launch positions. Pilots requesting double tows are required to review and follow WSC double tow procedures.

Double tows are for experienced pilots. Important procedural information should be reviewed prior to participating in the double tow program.
