Description

Iquique is often likened to South America's Organyà.

Typically, the flying conditions are quite stable, beginning at around 10am. There's usually a brief hiatus in activity for an hour or two around 1pm or 2pm, aligning with the emergence of stronger thermals, and then the action resumes post-lunch.

Located on the coast of the Atacama Desert, Iquique enjoys a predominantly dry climate, with rainfall occurring only a couple of days each year. This ensures almost daily opportunities for flight.

In terms of altitude, the average separation from the ground to the cloudbase in the box area is approximately 650 meters. However, the practical altitude available for use is somewhat limited; pilots can typically utilize about 300 meters before needing to circle back to the dynamic thermals for regaining height.
