Pal Takats in action at Red Bull Air Race
Ozone team pilot, Pal Takats, performed another paramotor display at the Red Bull Air Race, this time in Abu Dhabi. He flew once a day over three days in good conditions demonstrating acro maneuvers and low-level dynamic flying. This was the first stop in the 2015 tour and hopefully we will see him doing more demos at other locations this year.
Pal says, of his trip:
“I was very happy to have the chance to perform a paramotor demo on the first stop off the 2015 Redbull Air Race season! After Croatia and Malaysia it was the third such event for me in one year. It is always a very unique experience to be able to fly at locations where you normally could not be flying legally! Being at 500 meters over ground looking at the top floors of some buildings at eye height is not an every day experience. For the first time I was flying a show with a 100 meter long ribbon tape that was great fun and offers nice visuals for the spectators. As usual I first performed a series of acro maneuvers followed by low level piloting playing with the water. Conditions were quite nice for this with fairly low winds on all 3 days. I am really looking forward of performing more shows on other race locations this year!”
