Salto do Cavalo

Magnificent flight spot on the fantastic valley of Furnas!


The Salto do Cavalo flight allows several hours in thermal flight, with great possibility of cross. Landings are easy and broad.
The access is made in a private property near the road.
At Salto do Cavalo it is not allowed to fly without the knowledge of the local pilots and without the necessary authorization.
