What you'll do

We meet at the landing location at Praia de São Conrado, where we sign in for the flight at the Hang Gliding Association's office. After the registration, we drive up to Pedra Bonita Ramp at an altitude of 520 meters/1,700 feet, from where we take-off for an exciting flight over São Conrado, with wonderful views of Rio de Janeiro. After landing, we celebrate the experience with a cocontut's water or a cold beer or a Caipirinha or a tasty Açaí (a typical Brazilian frozen/smoothie made of Açaí palm fruit, served as a smoothie).
From the moment we meet, it takes around one hour and thirty minutes to finish if everything is okay with the weather and the wind.
Some times it takes longer if we have to wait for good and safe conditons to take-off and/or fly.
As there is only one take-off point for all hang gliding and paragliding pilots and instructors in Rio, it can take longer if it is very busy on the day we are going to fly.
As we depend on the weather and on the wind, try to book the experience for your first days in Rio. This way, if the weather or the wind are not good on the day of your reservation, we can reschedule for another day.
Other things to note
Light clothes such as t-shirts, shorts or pants and SNEAKERS.
Passport number for registration before the flight. Only the number.
Necessary to RUN FAST few steps on the ramp, without stopping.
EASY!

Awesome experience! Highly recommend for anyone looking to see all of Rio from a different perspective. Paulo was an awesome instructor, really knew what he was doing and genuinely wanted us to have a fun, safe experience. While waiting for our video, he have us some great tips on where to go and eat as well. Well worth the money spent and the memory

A great choice for those wanting an extra sense of adventure. Paulo and his son work through a hang gliding agency well known in Rio. He is a super pro! Because we have a toddler we had to look after during the experience, he thoughtfully altered the itinerary for our benefit upon request. Very professional, punctual, and personable.
