Ultra light planes are known for their ease of flying, operational safety, and light but fast engine. Normally in these tours an experienced pilot will be your companion and your guide to one of the most breath-taking experiences you will ever have. These planes have an the open cabin from where you can see the treetops of the rainforests below, the tropical birds gliding alongside your plane and feel the wind in your face. Many visitors say that this was one of the most unique and interesting tours they have ever taken.
When going in these tours you will normally get the oportunity to choose from special area tours (where you follow a specific flight path, usually over mangroves or marine parks), or you can have chartered tours.
