XC Camp Caicó
By winch to the cloudbase
In one phrase: the most consistent record conditions in the world! With currently 35 flights beyond the 500-km mark, Caicó is still by far the leading flying spot amongst Brazil’s record-breaking destinations.
In Caicó, we go out every day with the mobile roll-off winch to take advantage of the fantastic flatland conditions. The biggest difference to the known flying areas in the Sertao (Quixada, Tacima, Patu) is that in Caicó it is really flat and there are no jet effects due to terrain elevations. In addition, the winch simplifies the launch immensely. We still get safely into the air, while the wind on the slope launch sites has long since blown too strongly.
And Caicó’s unmatched reliable flying conditions mean that every day is your chance for a new record. With 10 years of winching experience in Northern Brazil, we ensure the best, safest and most efficient towing operations and fast retrieval.
