Free flight pioneers in Brazil, the Laghi family is involved in the discovery of a number of consagrated take offs in Brazil, and also launched during the 80s one of the first hangglider factories in Brazil, Prodelta, still active as a school to this day.
Since the 2000s the family became involved in paramotoring, and in 2010 the Laghis extended the paramotoring activities to the Amazon rainforest, a massive region with unbelievable sights and great conditions for practicing the sport.
In 2010 the first ever paramotor expedition in the Amazon followed along the Black River, when 5 paramotor pilots flew with a boat as support from Manaus to Barcelos, north of the Amazon basin, while of crossing over two of the biggest river archipelago in the world. Laghi Fly Trip repeats this expedition every year, following along also other tributaries of the Amazon River, like Tapajós and Xingu.
Laghi Fly Trip also promotes XC free flying expeditions to the most iconic launches in the Southeast + Middle West of Brazil. The XC guides Raphael and Gabriel Laghi deliver a great experience, accumulated over 8 years of flying, as they support pilots to improve their game.
