La Mariposa is located on the west side of Houghton Road 1/2 mile north of Speedway Blvd. and 1/2 mile south of Tanque Verde Rd. Look for the TWO LARGE STONE MONUMENTS that mark the entrance just a few yards west of Houghton Rd. The name of the street you will be turning west on is E Corte Vista La Mariposa. Follow it past the main building to the south end of the paved parking lot across from the tennis courts. Park there. We take off from the large polo field to the west.
20 minutes prior to takeoff.

We had a fantastic ride. Captain Ron took great care of us. There wasn’t much wind, so finding and navigating the landing we learned was a bit more challenging for him. For us it meant a longer ride :-) and our landing was great. We’d do it again in a second. Thanks much Ron and Crew.
Awesome experience and the pilot and ground crew were exceptional. I can easily recommend this to my friends.
Ron was super fun, professional, and a joy to fly with!
