There is only one big dropzone in Brazil, is located in Boituva, near Sao Paulo, wich is the biggest city in the country.

It has 3 Caravans and a Skyvan on the way, maybe next month, tickets skyrockted and costs US$ 60,00 to 12 grand.

Its a huge country, but all the others dropzones operates with little cesnnas.



Edited to add: Since Sao Paulo is the biggest city in the country, im pretty sure you will find the top jiujitsu schools.

An interesting thing about Boituva is that they have 20 dropzones at the same airport. Most of these are right next to each other, attached by the same building structure!! A crazy rash of instructors opening their own businesses led to it. When you go there it looks crazy! You don't even know where the hell to manifest! This was seriously one of the weirdest DZs I've ever been to. There is some great freeflying there though. Good people!

But he's right, it's the only turbine airport. Everywhere else is just Cessna. If you're looking to work, it may get seriously in the way that there are so many competing businesses. I hear it can get a little cut throat over tandem students. I had a blast just fun jumping there. I'd probably be frustrated and miserable working there.
