Mount Tamaro is good for training Acro in the morning. The Startplace is just 20meters away from the station. The landing field is about 50m away from the station. So you can do many flight's in a short time. There is no water.

Safety-Info's:
Take care of the valley-wind. After 12-13o'clock it can be strong and cause turbulences at the landing place. If you're already airborne and you notice that the wind is strong at the landing field, so you can fly to the south to Bironico. There is a big grass field beside the highway.
