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.
