    Oi CS RIO!

    Meu nome e Manuel e estou visitando RJ com meu primo Matias na próxima semana, e estamos interessados ​​em fazer um salto de asa-delta. Temos visto vídeos dele e é simplesmente incrível: as vistas da cidade são maravilhosas.

    Então, o dilema vem: qual empresa escolher e de onde saltar.

    Do que temos pesquisado, "a viagem clássico(e mais impressionante)" é saltar da Pedra Bonita (no Parque Nacional da Tijuca) e deslizar até a Praia do Pepino, em São Conrado.

    Eu também vi vídeos de saltos fora da Pedra da Gávea. Já tentou isso? O que você recomendaria a mais?

    Você já tentou / você sabe qualquer uma dessas empresas?

    Qualquer recomendação em termos de qual empresa escolher? Qualquer pessoa disposta a se juntar a nós?

    Esperamos ouvir de vocês em breve,

    Agradecemos antecipadamente,

    Manuel e Matias de Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    Hi CS RIO!

    My name is Manuel and I'm visiting RJ next week with my cousin Matias, and we're interested in doing a hang-gliding jump. We've seen videos of it and it's simply amazing: the views of the city are just gorgeous.

    So the dilemma comes ti this: which company to choose and where to jump off from.

    From what we've researched, "the classic (and most breathtaking) trip" is to jump off Pedra Bonita (in the Parque Nacional da Tijuca) and glide down to the Praia do Pepino in São Conrado.

    I've also seen videos of jumps off the Pedra da Gavea. Have you tried it? What would you recommend the most?

    Have you tried/ do you know any of these companies?

    http://www.asadeltariodejaneiro.com.br/

    Any recommendation in terms of what company to choose?


    Anyone willing to join us?

    Hope to hear from you guys soon,

    Thanks in advance,

    Manuel and Matías from Buenos Aires.

    I am thinking of doing this tomorrow. The suggestion I was given was just to go to the far end of Sao Conrado beach and meet an instructor. Most of them do the Pedra Bonita to Sao Conrado flight. Maybe this is too casual to "guarantee" the best views and experience, but it's the advice I was given.

    Thanks Ian!

    We're trying to figure out how to organize this thingy. We've received some info from our hostel - a company that works with them - http://www.nattrip.com.br/site/

    Eventually, everything will just find its way and all the previous arrangements and research will just... well... blah... blah.

    Nonetheless, it's interesting to have some feedback or advice on the jump. Hope your flight goes great - and don't forget to tell us how it went!

    Cheers and enjoy!

    Manny and Matias.

    I advise you take a look at this site www.niteroiparapentes.com.br, but only if you would like to know the paraglider..

    Obrigado Joao!

    I'll check it, thanks a lot! We'll have to see how do we make space for everything - the city is amazing and we have so little time!


    Cheers,

    M.

    Joao, I'm getting to the city next week. The message was to see what to expect and to grab some advice...

    Enjoy your flight!

    The hostel we booked works with a travel agency called Nattrip - do you guys know it?

    They said that for groups of just TWO people, they charge 400 reais for the jump - a bit expensive for us. But, it is sensible to believe that for larger groups the pricing should be friendlier (cheaper :P)

    Apparently they do have availability to jump THIS FRIDAY.

    Who's in? The larger the group, the cheaper the price. I'm sure we can bargain a bit.

    Cheers,

    Manny
