With one day delay we arrived in Peruibe. Here we will stay for a longer time. Lilis father is already here. We will support him now, since Lilis mother died a couple weeks ago. We hope that we can sell some aircrafts here in Brazil. 60% of Vans production is sold to Brazil. It is a big market here and since the road net is not very well developed, there is a need for a lot of aircrafts in Brazil.
Our goal is to fly back and for to the USA and import some airplanes, restore them here and sell them.
The prices in Brazil are about 30% higher than in the US.
Then we will buy a certified aircraft and continue our trip around the world.
We chose Peruibe because it is very close (100miles) to the economical capital Sao Paulo with its more than 22 million habitants. It is on the beach, it is a small town of only 50.000 people and of course, it has an airport. A nice familiar flying club with 3 RV-10, 5 RV-9, 5 Pelican, 3 Rans Coyote and a couple of GTs and trikes. The grass runway is 600m long.
|There is no way to fly direct through the Sao Paulo aera. You must strictly follow the VFR corridors.|
|A view to the endless beaches|
|Our daily exercises BIKING. Our house is only 400m away from the beach but the airport is 5 miles/8km away.|
|Giorgio and Paulo keep the club alive|
|The most important event at the airport. Churrasco!!!!|
|The daily market. Fruits and vegetables as far you can see.|
|Brewing our own beer. I have to test it every day. Lili did a good job!!!!|
