NEW SWEDISH RECORD – 223 km
On May 6th, Gillis Bengtsson set a new Swedish distance record on his ZENO. He took off from Ålleberg, a small mountain (90 m) in the Swedish flatlands. He landed, after 6 hours, close to the city of Kalmar.
Gillis is one of the most active paragliding pilots in Sweden. In his early paragliding career he practiced a lot of ground handling and soared a lot on small slopes and even castles.
He has been focused on distance flying for the last few years, and it’s great to see that all his earlier practice and consistency is now paying off.
Congrats and cheers from all the Ozone Team!
