It is important to fill the declaration for the temporary importation of the gliders into the country, which could be done following the stepby step instructions on this link:

When you select “Transmit”, after all the information is complete and you are ready to submit the declaration, you will get a screen saying  that your declaration was submitted successfully,  a “Declaration Number”, and a message saying that you will need to see a Customs officer upon arrival to present the declared goods.  You will also probably get a “Transmission Receipt” with a bar code.

We suggest you print this receipt.

Now you are ready to travel to Brazil with your hang glider and clear customs.


VIVO is the company in the area with the best signal coverage. You can either choose it on roaming if you choose to keep your own phone number “in the air”, or you can also buy a local VIVO pre-paid SIM card showing  your Passport ID on a VIVO Store.


 Pilots are reminded that this is a FAI Category 1, World Competition, where anti-doping rules will be strictly observed and enforced, either for “fair play” principles, as well as for competitor’s safety.

It’s worth mentioning that alcohol is on the list of forbidden substances, and it’s tolerated limit is 0.10g/l, which could be present on a blood sample after drinking aprox. 300 ml of beer, so pilots be careful on parties and celebrations.
