In April SkySchool organised two SkyWeek Brazil trips near Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, led by one of the most experienced paramotor instructors in the world, Ricardo Maciel.

The trip was a great success, with participants from all over the world gathering to learn and further develop their paramotoring skills in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. Each SkyWeek was a 10-day trip, during which participants had the opportunity to fly over some of the most stunning landscapes in Brazil.

One of the main attractions of the trip was the opportunity to fly over the Christ Redeemer Statue, one of the iconic landmarks in South America. The Christ Redeemer Statue is located close to the heart of Rio de Janeiro, yet surrounded by jungle. Flying over the statue was a unique and breathtaking experience for the pilots who were fortunate enough to do so.

Another highlight of the trip was the opportunity to fly over the beautiful beaches of north Rio de Janeiro. Brazil is known for its stunning coastline, and the paramotor provides a unique and exhilarating way to experience it. Pilots were able to fly low over the seemingly endless beaches for miles and miles!

Throughout the trip, participants received expert guidance and instruction from Ricardo Maciel. Ricardo has been flying paramotors for over 20 years and has competed in numerous international competitions. His wealth of experience and knowledge in the sport was invaluable to the participants, who were able to learn from one of the best in the world.

In addition to flying, participants also had the opportunity to experience the local culture and cuisine of Brazil. The group stayed in a beautiful beachfront hotel, where they were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. They also enjoyed traditional Brazilian cuisine, including the famous churrascaria where they carve the meat at the table in front of you.

Overall, both SkyWeek Brazil Trips provided an unforgettable experience for all involved. Participants were able to log a large number of hours and further develop their skills while enjoying the natural beauty and cultural richness of Brazil. The trip was expertly organised by Ricardo, who ensured that all participants received the best possible instruction and guidance.
