The Destination

Azores islands are located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and were recently elected the second best islands in the world for Sustainable Tourism by National Geographic Traveler. The experience takes place in the biggest and more varied island of the archipelago, São Miguel. Expect stunning views as you soar above the amazing volcano craters with its clear water and luxurious forest.

The Experience

The experience takes place in the biggest and more varied island of the archipelago, São Miguel. I have 22 years of flying experience in this island and will guide you to our best places and take offs, and help you make the best out of your flying day. We fly all year round, but usually the best season is from May to October. Once you take off you will understand why it is so overwhelming to fly in this island.
