Paramotor Courses in Brazil

We run Paramotor courses near Rio de Janeiro in January and February.

Brazil Courses

We have been running SkyWeek Brazil Trips since 2020. Due to their success we have decided to run some courses in Brazil in the middle of the European winter. Training takes place on the beach north of Rio de Janeiro and the courses are available for complete beginners, as well as intermediate pilots.

If you can't make it to Brazil check out our courses in the UK, Portugal and Spain. The information below outlines the course dates, fees, accommodation, food, travel, transport and insurance information.

    Students should aim to arrive and depart on a Sunday as the Courses start at 09.00 on Monday morning and end on Saturday afternoon. The courses follow the APPI PPG training syllabus.

    During the day please bring appropriate footwear (ankle supporting boots are recommended), water, food suncream and suitable clothing for the time of year, including a jacket and trousers as it can get cold while flying.

    Rio de Janeiro Airport is an affordable 75 minute taxi journey from the accommodation and is very well serviced by most UK and European airports at reasonable prices. You do not need to hire a car as we will be able to transport you to/from the accommodation for flying.

    We will connect students together on a WhatsApp group a month or so before the course allowing you to discuss sharing taxis. We require students sitting a course in Brazil to have their own Insurance. If you have any questions please contact us.

Ricardo and Zeb are incredibly professional and amazingly calming when you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by the amount of instructions that have to be put together to fly.
