Unser Aufenthalt bei Hartmut war absolut genial ! Es ist einfach schön, direkt an so einem wunderschönen Startplatz zu wohnen. Wir waren im Igloo, andere waren bei Hartmuts Haus, und alle waren begeistert. Fliegen, fliegen, fliegen... Wir haben in 8 Tagen sehr sehr viel gelernt : endlich mal das Rückwärts-Aufziehen, die Kontrolle des Schirms und das Top-Landen :) Wir hatten abends auch noch eine Menge Spaß mit anderen Fliegern im Pool, beim gemütlichen Grillen am Startplatz oder beim Erkunden der lokalen Bars und Restaurants. Danke Hartmut :)
I left with a heavy heart ! I want to go back ! To start the weather was not in a mood to comply but in the 7 days I flew for about 5 of them and in that short duration I was truly blown away by the beauty of the place ! But, what made the trip exceptional was the host! Ricardo is a very laid back and chilled out person with very deep understanding of the weather of the islands and he ensured that in the brief weather windows we had for flying, he maximised my flying time ! He and his family are especially loving and warm ! It was almost like I had known them for a long time, the way they treated me ! I am going back !
I spent a most wonderful time at the Azores. Thanks to Ricardo and is lovely family I felt quick at ease at his home and had the pleasure to live with very kind and helpful people. As it comes to the flying experience: it exceeded my expectations by far. Ricardo made every possible effort in order to get me flights. As a result I could fly every day, which would have been impossible without his help. A great pleasure as well was to meet some other local pilots, who all have been very friendly and welcoming. All in all I had a 5-star experience at this marvelous island: Thank you!
