It started as a family tradition

In 2010 the first ever paramotor expedition in the Amazon River Basin followed along the Black River, when the Laghi family accompanied by friends flew their paramotors with a boat as support from Manaus to Barcelos, while crossing over two of the biggest river archipelago in the world.

It became a full time mission

Raphael Laghi then felt the urge to share these amazing adventures with more pilots. After accumulating more than 1000 hours of flight and becoming an instructor, he was ready to start offering his services as an XC guide. Together with his wife Marília Reis and an amazing crew, he started organizing flying expeditions to the most iconic spots across the country.

And we are now expanding to even more places

There is something for every pilot. We offer paraglider and paramotor expeditions picked carefully to make the most of flying conditions all year round. In Brazil, every month of the year has some place that is working, and if the place you want to go to is not in our calendar, do contact us for a trip tailored for you (minimum 3 pilots).
