Chartering an air taxi in Trancoso can be a great opportunity to get to know this small village, which stands out as one of the most beautiful beaches on the extensive and beautiful coast of Bahia. Receiving thousands of tourists throughout the year, this district belonging to the municipality of Porto Seguro is one of the most popular destinations in Brazil.
Local fame does not come from today. Founded in the 16th century by Jesuits, the village became nationally known in the 1970s, when it was discovered by young people. Soon, that small group of houses around a church became one of the most visited places in the country and the growth was great.
Currently, the place is known mainly for the beaches. There are 10 of them, the most famous being Praia dos Coqueiros and Praia do Espelho. Another highlight of Trancoso is the Festa de São Sebastião, celebrated on the 20th of January, which brings together tourists and locals in a big celebration. On this day, men carry a wooden pole at least ten meters high and the flag of São Sebastião on top, replacing the previous year’s flag.
Airports in Trancoso
Despite being a small village, Trancoso is prepared to receive tourists via air taxi. The main location for this is Terravista Airport [TVT; SBTV], dedicated exclusively to executive aircraft operations. In operation since 2006, it is located within a complex of the same name, where there is a condominium of houses, a golf course, a theater and a club.
It has a paved runway of 1,500m illuminated for landings and takeoffs at night. Its structure is wide, allowing the presence of all types of aircraft, from the smallest to large jets. It also serves Caraíva, another small coastal town.
Another option much sought after by air taxi customers in the city is the helipad at the Hotel Fasano Trancoso, a large accommodation complex in front of Praia de Itapororoca. There are also other helipads such as FlyClub Trancoso and Sítio Praia Patimirim.
Porto Seguro – Trancoso: one of the most requested routes
One of the main routes when it comes to air taxis in Trancoso is within the city of Porto Seguro, with flights departing from the part closest to the city center and heading to the village. The distance is about 30 kilometers and the journey is made by helicopter. Depending on the aircraft, the flight can vary between 15 and 25 minutes.
One of the most used models on this route is the Airbus EC130 B4, a single engine tailor-made for tourist tours and VIP missions. Its spacious cabin comfortably accommodates up to seven passengers and its large luggage compartments make the luggage space up to 40% larger than that of aircraft of this category. It also has Fenestron’s silent Fan-in-fin tail rotor, which makes it extremely discreet when flying over urban areas, air conditioning system, Bose headphones and leather seats.
Another ideal option for this trip is the Airbus Ecureuil, one of the most popular helicopters in its class. It has energy-absorbing adjustable seats and shoulder belts that offer great comfort and safety. All seats face forward, allowing passengers to enjoy the panoramic view offered by the large windows, ideal for disembarking on the coast.
