Unsere Piloten haben Spaß da draußen

June 11, 2014

Auf der ganzen Welt freuen sich Ozone Piloten gerade über ihre neuen Schirme, haben richtig viel Spaß mit ihnen und erzielen super Ergebnisse. Bei XC Abenteuern, beim Hike & Fly und auf Wettbewerben.

Darunter auch unser “Big Boss” Mike:

Ozone’s Managing Director, Mike Cavanagh, got away from his desk to break a UK record with the first ever 100km declared FAI Triangle. This sets a new British record for the biggest declared triangle and also biggest triangle. Mike began the flight with several friends, and he says that they had some epic flying in the Cairngorms of Scotland. During the entire flight they did not cross a road, so the walk-outs would have been equally epic for the UK. Unfortunately it all “went a bit pants” in the last 6km and Mike was the only one to close the declaration. Mike reports, “After some increasingly desperate scratching, my final thermal to get me home was triggered by a massive herd of 200+ red deer!” To see the tracklog, visit: http://www.xcleague.com/xc/flights/20141347.html

Sebastian Kummerer hat uns von einem Hike &Fly Wochenende berichtet, bei dem er über die Gipfel der österreichischen Alpen unterwegs war. Sebastian schreibt: “Please find attached some impressions from my XC Hike & Fly tour on the past weekend. The conditions were phenomenal which gave me and my new Alpina 2 the chance to explore the Alps North and South. It was a fantastic adventure and I am near the status ´impressions-overload`.” Sebastians Tracklog durch die Alpen findet ihr hier.

Boldizsar Bajor schreibt uns aus Ungarn: “I just flew across our country with my great Delta2 glider. It was an amazing 6 hours and 30 minutes. Beating my personal record, I managed to fly 198kms. The first 2 hours it was quite challenging, and I was slow, only 50kms. But then the weather became better, and what was really amazing: at 18:30 I managed to get up to 2000m to start my final glide, which was from that height. The final glide took 30 minutes in incredibly calm air, and I travelled 25kms. The glider is just the best – I cannot imagine anything better. Performance is unbelivable, handling cannot be better!” Hier geht es zu Boldis Tracklog.

Und in der Zwischenzeit haben Wettkampfpiloten in Norwegen ein weiteres Podium erobert. Infos hierzu: weitere Siege. Unsere Glückwünsche gehen an Einar, Kjell-Harald und Rolf!

Vielen Dank an alle, die uns von ihren großartigen Flügen berichtet haben. Wir freuen uns immer, davon zu hören. Ein Cheers vom gesamten Team!
