Quixada, Brazil XC

Availability : Fully Booked

£1,500.00
Time to go for big flights in the superb flatlands of Quixada !! With calm winds in December, as opposed to the famous strong winds, launches are easier and yet there is potential to do 200-300km flights and even 100km triangles. This trip will be led by Debu Chowdhury.

Details

Quixada needs no introduction, and we at Escape are very proud to be presenting it on our calendar for 2019. In the northeast of Brazil, Quixada is famous for the long distance flights that always occur in the period from September to early November. However, from mid-November to early February the conditions get softer with weaker winds, and this is the period we are choosing for our group of pilots.

Come join us on this epic flying tour of the famous flatlands, ready to fly hard and far everyday.

Our aim is to have everyone getting personal bests and making the most out of the conditions. We invite you to join us on this adventure to push our XC limits, on a quest for multiple long distance flights !! This XC trip is all about flying far and fast, with a group of good pilots who know each other's flying styles well, and can make the most of flying together in close gaggles to work the flatlands to their max potential.

We've kept the duration of this trip to 10 days, during which we will be pushing distance from day one. Although we are offering a full retrieve service, no matter how far you fly, be prepared for long and tiring journeys back each day. We will urge all pilots to fly as per their stamina and endurance limits and take rest days as required, to make the most of each day that you chose to fly.

The trip cost of £1,500 includes XC guidance, airport transfers, accommodation with breakfast, daily mountain transport and a full retrieve service, no matter how far you fly each day !

As this is our first exploratory trip, we are taking only a small group of pilots who have been flown with us long distances regulary and we are aware of their skills and capabilities. If you are interested in joining us for this trip, please send us a mail at info@jockysanderson.com. Once we confirm your place, you can then make the full payment.

Accommodation

We will be staying at the lovely Pedrados Ventos resort (www.pedradosventos.com.br) which was built for the free flight and stands on a stone mountain with a panoramic restaurant where you can see a whole beautiful valley and take a caipirinha in the late afternoon by the pool. The hotel has 2 takeoff ramps and is about 10km away from the official ramp of Quixadá.

It is run by one of the most experienced teams in Quixada, who will be providing us with local ground support. Large comfortable and air-conditioned rooms are available on a twin sharing basis or a single supplement. And sumptuous breakfasts are included in the package to fuel your long day.

Flights & Transfers We will be flying into Pinto Martins – Fortaleza International Airport, which is about 180kms away. One way airport transfer is about 80 euros, although we will try to get a minibus for the entire group if we are arriving together.
