Flying site

Governador Valadares is a world famous flying site in Brazil. Governador Valadares speaks for itself. Smooth, reliable climbs to a warm cloudbase, over a rolling landscape of green hills that extends as far as the eye can see and the pilot can fly. A great place to perfect coring skills and speed-to-fly with other free flyers or in friendly local comps.

Pico do Ibituruna (911 m) is the only take-off in Governador Valadares. There is another hanggliding take of to the South of it - Caratinga . Thermals are light and often in the same place; you just have to get the cycles right. It’s good to get up to launch about 11am and take off from about 12 noon to 1pm.
January to April for the best conditions, with smooth and reliable thermals and classic XC days. Days gets stronger through the year with conditions peaking in August and September when climbs can reach 8m/s. Cloudbase usually from 1,500m to 2,300m

Take off Ibituruna 1062m ASL
-18.886177,-41.915740
There are large grassy launch slopes on both sides of the summit ridge, with a cobbled road between, leading to two cafés and the toilets. The wind is often very light and it gets hot, so keep protected. A club bus goes to launch from the centre of town, plus there are several private shuttle operators.
