Best season:
March to September, however due to climate changes this period has been changing constantly.

Pros:
Ramp is excellent for XC flights. The condition of the region is favored by the relief and climate; There are many free areas around favoring possible landings. XC flights can be made in several directions, so go with a good rescue and get a map of the region (If you prefer, click here and download the Waipoints and map of the region). This ramp is one of the few in the world to receive stages from the PWC - World Championship and hang gliding and Brazilian paragliders.

Cons:
Not recommended for beginning pilots at peak times, as thermal activities are intense. It is not advisable to take off in strong winds, as there are no escape areas, in this case it usually lands just below the ramp, but the turbulence is quite considerable; It is a ramp more appropriate to cross country, in case of lift you must pay close attention.

The Serra do Monjolo in the months of April to July usually has a milder temperature, it is convenient to take cold clothes, because the thermal difference in relation to the city is usually quite significant at this time of year.

The second tip is for those who prefer to come by bus; The options are:

White Eagle - www.aguiabranca.com.br
Viação Pretti - www.viacaopretti.com.br
Gontijo - www.gontijo.com.br

We advise those who choose to travel by the bus company Gontijo, as this company serves the neighboring city, Aimorés MG, but it will be a good option for those coming from the state of Minas Gerais.

For those who come by car, the access is made by roads in good conservation conditions, seek information about the necessary guidelines for access. The city is in the northwest of the state.
