Island mit dem Motor Gleitschirm

October 24, 2017

Island ist für seine verzaubernden Landschaften und seine harten Wetterbedingungen bekannt. Dennoch ist es einer der besonderen Orte, von denen viele Motor Gleitschirmflieger träumen.

Vergangenen August hat eine Gruppe von Piloten, die meisten von ihnen aus den USA, zwei Wochen in Island verbracht. Offensichtlich hatten sie mit dem Wetter richtig Glück, da all ihre Bilder und Videos einfach phantastisch aussehen. Drei der Piloten waren mit einem Ozone Flügel unterwegs: Miroslav Svec (Viper 3), Matej Roder (Roadster 2) und Tucker Gott (Viper 4).

Tucker Gott berichtet uns Folgendes:

“Iceland is easily the most beautiful place I have ever flown a paramotor. From the very first flight above glaciers and high mountain peaks, I knew this place was special. We lucked out with near perfect weather and the golden light was amazing the entire week. My favorite flight was a cross country adventure to the Maelifell volcano. It was nearly a two hour flight which began in green and black mountains. As we neared the volcano, the landscape opened up to flat black plains where the bright green volcano rose from the ground. My second favorite flight started in Skogafoss and continued down a cliff face with multiple waterfalls. At the end of the flight, I climbed to the peak of a mountain and dove my 16m Viper 4 down the mountain in perfectly calm air”Nick Radford photo gallery from Iceland >> here
The Iceland trip was organized by Miroslav Svec, owner of the Scout Paramotor and took place on August 13th to August 24th.
