Entry from British & World English dictionary
The towing of a glider by a powered aircraft to a height suitable for launching.
- Over the past three years I have had first hand experience with all the many variables that are a part of aerotowing hang gliders.
- Ground based aerotowing was just a bit too labor intensive on the part of those of us who got those guys in the air.
- Michelle's done a ton of aerotowing, but this was her first foot launch off anything higher than 20 feet!
