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!

Paulo and his team were extremely helpful to make sure we had an exceptional time. He communicated in advance to make sure we took advantage of the weather during our trip. This is a MUST DO while visiting Rio. I highly recommend Paulo to take you flying high! Thanks from Ohio, USA.

Very great experience. The location is great and the teachers are very cool and make sure you have a good time while keeping you safe. Great group of energetic teachers and the location is at a superb and scenic part of Rio at end of cul de sac beach. Recommend it to anyone wanting to have a memorable adrenaline rush memory to last forever. The weather was bad on the first day of my reservation and Paulo went out of his way to accommodate a time the next day when the weather was better. Professional and friendly group!

Мы совпали с Пауло в том, что помимо ощущений нам так же важна безопасность. Так что мы не полетели пока не убедились, что погодные условия подходят. Эмоции потрясающие! Очень хочется летать ещё и ещё.

¡¡Fue increíble!! Sin embargo la confianza y seguridad que Paulo proyecta es impresionante. Cuando estás arriba piensas "no podré hacerlo" pero Paulo inspira mucha confianza, es un persona muy profesional, está atento a todo (viento, horario, formatos que llenar). Su hijo Felipe es súper amable y te ayuda también en todo, me pasaron hasta videos muy completos. ¡¡Amazing guys!!

A must when you are visiting Río de Janeiro. Paulo and his team are the best. I felt super safe the whole time and Paulo made sure I had a great time. The adventure includes GoPro videos and pictures so all you do is run, smile and FLY.
