2 week Thermalling and XC Trip visiting some more of the best flying sites in Brazil!
Fly-guided by Carlo Borsattino, British Team 2004 with expert local assistance
A bit about the trip and the sites…
We will fly into Belo Horizonte airport, and during the trip we will be flying at some of the best flying sites in Brazil, including world-famous Governador Valadares and other wonderous XC flying locations!
The pilots who came with us in February – March 2004 were amazed at just how fantastic and friendly the flying sites and conditions are in Brazil – surely the best place in the World for British pilots to pratice their thermalling and XC flying skills during the winter so they can make the most of the UK summer season!
Quotes from pilots…
To whet your appetite, here are JUST SOME quotes from the pilots who came with us in 2004…

2 Week Tour – £1,000 per person,
Deposit required: £400 (to secure place)

– Transport to take off from our hotel and retrieve along the days chosen XC route, with driver
– Daily brief on take off regarding weather conditions and flying for the day

What’s not included:
– Flights which are approximately £600 plus taxes, we usually find the best price for the flights for each trip and then reserve flights for the individual to pay for directly.
We prefer if everyone is on the same flight, but we understand this is not always possible as pilots come from all over the World. All we ask is that everyone is at the arrival airport at the same time, or earlier than the main group arrival time for the airport transfer.
– Lunches and dinner, although we will recommend and take you to some excellent places!
