Parapente e vôo duplo em Canoa Quebrada

PARAGLIDING – Tandem flights with Jerônimo


The story of gliding in Brazil began in the beginning of the seventies in Rio de Janeiro with the first delta wing pilot of the country: Luiz Claudio Mattos.
At the end of 1986 came the time of the paragliding in Brazil. This time, it was a Swiss pilot wo introduced this new practice: Gérome Bertand Saunier, best known as Jerônimo.
Jerônimo now lives in Canoa Quebrada (CE) and he flies almost everyday, taking passengers (dual flights) over the cliffs and the beach for an extraodinary sensation of liberty while discovering a stunning panorama. The departure of the flights take place near the Church Square, descending from Broadway to the beach. Good winds are a determining factor for the practice of paragliding. Normally the flights take place in the afternoon from 3 o'clock. The duration of a flight is about 15 to 20 minutes.
