Would pick up on time at the subway station of Sao Conrado and brought to the beach. Safety first because we first thought we have to move the flight because it was said there is too much wind. We decided to wait a bit and then the wind got better so we signed the documents and paid the 60 real insurance and then we went up the mountain. There everything was prepared professionally and we flew with the professionals. That was the best thing about Rio and you land on the beach. And get the pictures and a whole video of one of the 3 cameras on the tandem screen for free on your phone or memory card. The contact in advance was good and easy via WhatsApp. And everybody speaks English.
