The Annual Coupe Icare Festival…
For the 10th year in a row, Ozone visited the Coupe Icare Festival in St Hilaire du Touvet, France. Each year our French importer, Alixa, manages to create something outstanding, and this year was certainly no exception. Although our stand was a simple affair and an intimate size, what occurred outside the stand in the main landing field during Thursday night was, we thought, rather impressive! See the photo at right, which was taken from over 1000 meters away, and was probably almost visible from outer space 🙂
If you were flying at the Coupe, or just sight seeing, and you shot a good photo of the world’s largest Ozone logo, please send it to us for the gallery.
At the event we announced a few new wings that will be coming in the near future. Please stay tuned for more info, but for now we can tell you that we’re planning to release a new Mantra M3 in early 2009 with some exciting new design elements gleaned from our competition research program. Also, we’re refreshing the class-beating Magnum, improving the riser system and adding a 38m size. And the Viper2 will also soon be released, and certified! More detailed and individual news releases will follow in the near future, and we’ll send out more info in the next Ozone Newsletter as well.
Cheers from all the Team.
