Default Tow plane types/mods for high density altitude glider towing

I believe it was also used for at least one outlanding from a very small flat area in a river bed. The chopper didn't need a ground roll, and the glider didn't need much of one.

No, the Swiss team would have like to but the team manager said no and the trailer was choppered in
