It was a great experience. Really recommended. Rio Adventures did a great job scheduling my flight with Ronaldo Asa, A very nice guy, great pilot. I had nothing to worry about. He did an outstanding job with the flight, the pictures and videos.

Hang Gliding with Ronaldo and Zero

This was an incredible experience. I flew with Ronaldo, who was a great instructor (and spoke excellent English, which was great news for me as my Portuguese is sadly terrible). The views were incredible and it felt very safe. My travel companion flew with Zero and had "zero" issues -- also a great flight. Would recommend this company to anyone interested in hang gliding in Rio!
World-class location with very good operators

We booked this adventure through our hotel to ensure safe transport and include the video option. The flights themselves were incredible and we highly recommended doing it(Rio is one of the top places in the world to hang glide). Expect a less-organized tour, however. The day was 3 hours longer than expected due to a shared-pilot pool and high tourist volume. Very difficult for English-only speakers and little communication regarding updates or expectations.
Some things you should know:
Tour is very wind-dependent, so don’t plan a tight schedule around your flight
“Larger” guests will not be able to hang glide, but may have to parasail/paraglide instead (still not sure what the max weight/height is though)
Extra steps are required for minors, including passport recordkeeping (via WhatsApp) and sign-off from guardian on-site (though the additional cost was included/removed in the overall package price)
No guidance was given on basic prep - be sure to use insect repellent (launch site is in the Tijuca Forest), wear comfortable clothes, and recommend close-toed shoes (you do have to run to take off)
10% additional charge for credit cards (hotel confirmed this might include 5% for an informal tourist tax)

I went Hang Gliding with Ronaldo F. and had a very good experience. Meeting Ronaldo was easy, and without much wind delay we made it to the launch pad. We had a good flight that, according to my GoPro footage video start to finish, lasted just under 8 minutes. We landed on Pepino beach and Ronaldo was kind enough to take some additional pictures for me with my phone. The experience used two GoPros to film the flight. Apparently the price included footage from one camera and Renaldo told me the other camera footage would cost me R$100.
