Rio de Janeiro: Hang Gliding Recommendation

My spouse and I will visit Rio de Janeiro for a few days in early February. We are planning to hang-glide (not para-glide) and are seeking recommendations for reputable companies. We've sent out some emails, and have had the most positive and organized responses from a company called Beto Rotor. Does anyone have additional comments or recommendations? Thanks!

We just returned from Rio, and I did a tandem hang-gliding ride. I selected Tandem-Fly, a fairly reputed outfit which was mentioned in Lonely Planet guidebook. Had an excellent experience with them. It is run by 3 pilots, who have over 25 years of experience. I flew with a pilot called Ronny, and had a great time.

Cost me R$ 250, plus a tax of R$ 15. Complimentary transport to and from the hotel was included. My wife could travel along and watch, at no extra cost. Their website is www.riotandemfly.com.br . Would strongly recommend them as I had a great time with them.
