The paraglider flight is one of the easiest ways of flying without noisy engines or a lot of weight.
It was invented more than 40 years ago and meant to be simple.
Rio de Janeiro is a beautiful place to make this flight and the city of Niterói, just accros the Guanabara Bay, has the sight of the best part.
You can even spend the day in other local activities, like hiking, enjoying the beach, experiencing the gastronomy (there are several nice restaurants nearby) or just relaxing in the park.
The City’s Park (Parque da Cidade de Niterói) is one of the top places for sightseeing.
The flight is made by an instructor, will be filmed and photographed, and just after it you’ll be free to depart to the next activities!

What should and shouldn't I eat before flying?
The ideal is that you eat normally (no excesses) in your breakfast, knowing that you can feel sick if you eat nothing or too much. It is better to fly before lunch time. If it will be in the afternoon don't eat much at lunch.
How can i know the duration of my flight in advance?
The wind is lord of flights... If the wind is weak, there's no magic, we will glide down slowly. With weak wind it will take 4-5 minutes. If the wind is good, we can fly for about 20 minutes. Know that we will always state the shortest flight time that we can do in the given conditions and try to increase that to the maximum. You can always wait for a better wind to start.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes. According to the season and local temperature (it will not change much from the surface). If it is cold, bring a wind blocker light coat. Always wear shoes that wont fall or slip from your feet, like sneakers or sandals. We will be outside, so you can bring your hat (we will use helmets during the flight) Use sun screen. Its wise to use insect repellents, since we will be in a park for the taking off.
Can a handicapped person fly?
Yes! We have a special preparation depending on the incapacity. Talk to us and we'll see.
Is there a maximum age?
No. You should know that this sport is safe and the operation can be very smooth. But if you have any mobility or health issue, we should know in advance.
