Are you looking for things to do in Uruguay that are completely original? Fly Uruguay will take you on a panoramic flight in a plane or helicopter over the Uruguay coast or fly inland to a winery or estancia in the fraction of the time it takes by road.

Fly Uruguay is also the quickest, most personalised way to fly regionally between Uruguay to Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

Fly Uruguay is a small, reputable company founded over a decade ago by Federico Francois. He bought a plane in the USA and flew it down to Uruguay on a fourteen-day adventure flight. After that there was no going back to the office. He quit a successful career in technology to dedicate himself to flying full-time. He began his career offering guided scenic flights—which he still does personally—, private flights and he’s also an instructor and helicopter and glider pilot.
