Really an amazing experience seeing the sites of Rio from the air! I would highly recommend this experience to anybody who's always wanted to do this. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be!

Amazing experience! One member of our group decided he wanted to go paragliding instead of hang gliding last minute and Rotorfly were very accommodating. The instructors are experienced and I requested a high adrenaline flight: Beto was incredible and took me on a few loops / fast rides. We all agreed that doing hang gliding + paragliding was much more worth it than doing a helicopter ride. The views over Rio are fantastic too!

'WOW'! What an amazing experience. This is definitely a must and should be on everyone's 'bucket list' of things to do. Very well organised, great communication, fantastic instructor with over 20 years experience and great price. Highly recommend this operator if thinking of booking a flight whilst in Rio!

Wanted to do hang gliding.

I was scheduled to go hang gliding, however the instructor said it was better to do paragliding instead. The reasons he gave was the wind and my need to run off. He said paragliding only required me to walk instead of running for take off. Initially I was ok with running as I feel my physical fitness to run is good. However he talked about the possibility of getting hurt and sounded "ify" so I agreed with paragliding. After talking to another person that had the thing happened, we both agreed that weight also played a role. I'm about 170lbs. I'm not arguing about the weight related to the safety in flying, just wish I would have known ahead of time. However the instructor for paragliding was great and no complaints with him.

My mom and I had a wonderful experience. Mahmoud was amazing and new very good English. He walked me through the entire process and made sure I felt safe and confident about my flight. My mother’s instructor was experienced but did not speak or understand much English. He was not able to instruct and prep my mom about her flight.. this led to my mom being very nervous before her flight. However, once she was in the air, she loved her flight and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. Unfortunately, she has MANY big and bad bruises on her arms and legs due to the lack of prepping and proper instruction to sit comfortably prior to her flight. Overall, I highly recommend this company for their safety and overall experience. But, I would greatly recommend more English speaking instructors like Mahmoud to take English speaking people for the flight.

Beto and his assistant, Rodrigo, were outstanding. It was a cloudy day and many hang gliders were waiting to take off. There overall concern for safety and having a great experience were welcome.

Had an absolutely amazing flight with Beto! He was so friendly and joking around the whole time to keep me from being nervous. Video from the GoPros was great but Beto was really good about getting different still shots and poses while we were in the air. Would highly recommend!
