Considered bringing a ultra light (Trike) down and flying from the beach in Pescadero. Uncle Tom would have objected even though he wouldn't be in my flight path. I was told I would need permission to fly in MX airspace from the Jefe at the La Paz airport.

I know one gringo (now national) who flaunts the rules taking off and landing on the Pedrito beach.

I'm not a national so wouldn't risk losing my craft. Play it safe, get permission if you need it. Includes filing a flight plan.

US Marines: providing enemies of America an opportunity to die for their country since 1775.

Does mx allow BASE jumping and flying squirrel suits? Hang gliders?i see parasailing with lawn mower fans occasionally, so seems like ultralights would be ok
