On October 9th, Ozone team pilot Seiko Fukuoka set a new female record after flying 460 kms, beating Yael Margelisch’s 442km of 4 October. Seiko was flying with teammates Charles Cazaux and Felix Rodriguez. All flying Enzo 3.

The same day Mexican pilot Alex Loyarte took his Zeno for an impressive 509 Km flight launching from the Rampa De Vôo Livre in Patu.
On October 12th, Seiko flew a bit further, landing 472 kms away from launch.
Meanwhile Swiss pilot, Yael Margelisch (Enzo 3) was about to become the first female pilot to pass the 500km mark breaking the record again with an amazing 553 Km flight.
Definitely a week to remember! Congrats to all the pilots and cheers from all the Ozone Team.
Keep all those long flights coming! @seiko_fukuoka @feliximbol @kzoairlines @yael_margelisch

“Yesterday was a top quality experience! We launched into a blue sky, with barely enough lift to stay aloft. As the day progressed the climbs get stronger and stronger, we flew faster and faster. During the middle two hours of the day it was rowdy enough to remind myself that the day will taper out into a spectacular evening. Six of us were hooting and hollering into the sunset together after 10.5 hours in the air. And retreive was on us in minutes, 430km from launch(thanks Roland!). For most of the day we had 10 top PWC pilots(and excellent friends) gaggle flying in top form, all on Enzo 3s. Not only the coolest flight I've had, but the coolest one I can imagine”
