About Rio Hang Gliding on the Road


Rio Hang Gliding has been offering Hang Gliding and Paragliding tandem flights in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil operating in the Worlds largest Hang Gliding center since 2000 it's Konrad Heilmann is very passionate about the sport of Hang Gliding and very excited about sharing the amazing experience of free flying with Rio de Janeiro visitors from all over the globe.

The Rio Hang Gliding on the Road project was born during the summer of 2018. while touring Europe for the competition Konrad decided it was the time to put forward the project he had long been thinking off, taking the experience of Hang Gliding beyond Rio de Janeiro by bringing Rio Hang Gliding overseas. The first stop is Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands in Spain. With over 6 different quality flying sites this small Island of ancient Volcanos in the middle of the Atlantic ocean is an excellent place to experience the freedom of flying free like a bird.
