      A great experience.
      The Algarve from a different angle, more beautiful than ever in the evening sun, and great views of Vila Real de Santo Antonio, Tavira, Cabanas (and our house too!) and Castro Marim. The shapes and colours of the salinas are a large-scale stained glass window, and you get to see flamingos from above. Altogether a fabulous birthday present. Thanks to Pedro and the team for the experience.

    The flight experience was simply amazing! Pedro was a perfect host and explained all details of the journey by gyrocopter. His enthusiasm and passion for his work and his generosity to share this are remarkable. Ria Formosa Park has a unique beauty and seeing it from above, with all the colours, the juncture between land and water, is a breathtaking experience. Heartfelt thanks for this unforgettable moment!

    Wowzers! Absolutely amazing experience 😁🚁 Pedro is an amazing friendly pilot with lots of knowledge about the area and a funny character too, who likes to have a laugh and relaxes any nerves you might have 😁 we did the trip as a group of six taking turns. Stunning views of Monte Gordo and Cacela Velha. A must do activity if you are ever in Monte Gordo. Thank you for such an amazing experience, highly recommend.

    I was in Monte Gordo for a week and the flight was defiantly one of most amazing experiences that I had in Portugal. From the flamingo's to the Spanish coast/beaches, the pilot has a heart for the place and told amazing stories. Even after the flight was over we had a conversation about the similarities between the Portugese and moroccan culture.

    My flight with Pedro was one of the highlights of my holiday in Portugal. I had total confidence in Pedro as my pilot and the terrain in this part of the Algarve is spectacular. The terrain of the rias, the sea, beaches and forests can only be experienced from the air. Pedro was a wonderfully informative and light hearted tour guide as well. I have been in gliders, motor planes and flown paragliders in the French alps but as an aviation experience this was on another level. My wife was so taken with it that she wants to do it when we return.

    It was my second ride with SkyXpedition and I was happy to be able to do it again. If you do it once you´ll like it so much that you´ll come back. The best option so see the beautiful Eastern Algarve from the sky. Plus a very nice pilot & team who really care about you! When will you fly????

    I went on a flight with SkyXpedition and throughly enjoyed it. The journey was incredible and beautiful. I would recommend it to anyone. Pedro is a very informative and friendly guy who you definitely like. Don’t have second thoughts, just book it, it’s worth it all.

    Booked for my teenage son and he absolutely loved it, a bargain for the experience. Ran by a lovely friendly couple and dog Sal, who could made us all feel really welcome. Recommend 100%
