Gregory Knudson Sets New World Record with EnZo 2
A few weeks ago, Greg sent us a message saying that he was planning to return to Kenya in order to attempt a new world record. Greg was flying his new EnZo 2, which he said “…is unquestionably an elegant machine …I felt instantly at home on it”. He had only been in the country for a few days before we received news that things had gone exactly according to plan.
Greg hails from Luxembourg, and his new world record is for speed over an out-and-return course of 200 km. Flying at an average speed of 36.22 km/h, at 5 hours, 31 minutes, 18 seconds, his flight was a full 20 minutes faster than the previous record holder’s time. The flight took place on January 19th, 2014, exactly one year to the day of Greg’s previous world record (100 km out-and-return). Pending FAI ratification, this flight makes Gregory a two-time world record holder.
Congrats Mr. Knudson, excellent work!
