Brazilian northeast is the place where world and continental records happen. Every year dozens of pilots fly more than 300Km. Strong and constant trade winds trade winds, blowing all day from East-to-West with many cloud streets, help pilots to fly more than 11 hours and break records like Glauco's 630Km Hang Gliding 3-Turnpoints world record last year (https://www.fai.org/record/19121) and 582Km Paragliding world straight distance made by 3 brazilian paragliding pilots together (https://www.fai.org/record/19127) last year too.
