Last week of April, Sky Sports – Ozone Power dealer from Egypt – organized an event inviting 35 pilots from 10 countries (USA, Mexico, UK, Poland, Spain, Cyprus, Germany, Oman, Brazil, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia) to fly paramotor over The Pyramids of Giza.
The oldest and largest of the three pyramids is The Great Pyramid of Giza, also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
Despite a few technical problems and delays in logistics caused by heavy storm just the night before the even started, all pilots could fly 6 days in a row every morning.
Emilia Plak (Poland) reports: “Flying near Egyptian Giza Pyramids was one of the best and “once in the life time” experience. We were taking off only 500 m from the Pyramids and we could fly just next to them! I am happy I could share it with so many of my paramotor friends from around the World”
Chad Bastian (USA) : “Thank you for the invite! This turned out to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly somewhere extremely unique. The bonus was the group of pilots from all over the World, we have new friends and new places to visit soon! I am extremely grateful to the Egyptian authorities that allowed it, and Sky Sports and Ozone Power for putting this together. I bet it was not easy to get permission. We will never forget this!”
Andreas Kolb (Germany): “Sitting in the office and looking dreamily out the window… then I look at the pictures again and realize it was not a dream it was true. My eyes and opinions have opened up a little further and I hope I can keep these impressions for a long time for me. Many thanks to all the nice people I got to know, you have enriched my life with another experience”
Sofoklis Sofokleous (Cyprus): “Travelling to Cairo and visiting the pyramids of Giza is an amazing experience on its own. Having the opportunity to fly over one of the 7 wonders of the world is mind blowing! The energy and the vibe of just being there, is incredible, but most importantly meeting up with so many great pilots from all over the world, made the whole journey just so much better. Thank you to Ozone and Sky Sports for such a beautiful experience.”
