I will again be working with, Dean Crosby, CFI of Active Edge Paragliding, which after 28 years makes it one of the longest-running and most successful paragliding schools in the UK.
In 2020 we will run three tours:
Places on the tours will be strictly limited to 7 pilots so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Dean will be guiding the groups in the air, providing in-flight coaching by radio and giving theory lectures. He is a BHPA Senior Instructor with a vast amount of experience – former Captain of both the British Paragliding Team and the British Hang Gliding Team; competing at national level in all three disciplines (paragliding, hang gliding and sailplanes); flying for 36 years; he has been British Paragliding Champion and twice British Cross-Country Champion. Dean has also held distance records in both Valadares and Baixo Guandu.
I have been flying paragliders for the past 19 years and have clocked up more kilometres than I care to remember. I first came to Brazil in 2004 and was immediately hooked – what an amazing place! The people, the climate and the consistently reliable conditions make it second-to-none. I moved here permanently in 2006 and have been running guided tours for paraglider pilots from all over the world for the last 10 year. I will be offering advice and assistance on the take-off where necessary and then coordinating the retrieves.
We will be based in Governador Valadares, considered to be one of the best paragliding locations on the planet. We usually try to visit two or three different sites, to give pilots a bit of variety, but this will really depend on the conditions. Our priority is to get you flying XC as much as possible.
