THRILLING & BEAUTIFUL FLIGHT

Great experience. Thrilling and beautiful flight - you won't be disappointed. While the flight itself is short (about 6 mins), you'll need to block out 2-3 hours for registration, basic training, transportation up the hill, and potential weather delays. Note that the fee only includes the front camera. The side and rear cameras are an extra R$100 (Brazillian Real).

It was a nice experience. The team was nice and friendly, maybe a little bit more explanation at the beginning would be helpful (administrative documents to sign, lockers...)
