Earlier this year, French American pilot Jean Francois Chabaud flew 6000 miles paramotor tour across America! This is by far the longest distance ever attempted and achieved by paramotor! @jeanfrancoischabaud
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He was flying Ozone Roadster 3 in size 22m and supported by ground crew along the route.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jean reports:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Total forty days of flying: San Diego, California to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida then Mexico.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Distance flown: 6,150 miles and only driving 60 miles in US and 200 miles in Mexico.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Launched and landing at the same spot 98% of the time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My The longest flying day was 8.5 h! The biggest and fastest distance was over 1,000 miles distance flown in just four days!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This epic adventure had its highs and lows, literally… from sea level to 9,600 ft (2926 m)!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My top speed was approximately 81.4 mph (131 kmh) above Mobile, Alabama.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had about 40 deflations, including six major deflations but the great Ozone Roadster 3 saved my life many times as it’s such a good and safe xc wing.
This Roadster 3 wing is brilliant, fun to fly!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want to meet Jean and chat about his epic adventure, he will be attending some events in Europe this year, like Parafest in UK (July) and Coupe Icare in September in France. Congratulations to Jean. We are looking forward to seeing his next adventure!

Cheers from all Ozone Team

2019 French Paramotor Championships was held in ULM Airfield Couhe-Verac from 29 June till 6th July. There were total 35 pilots competing in class PF1 (solo foot launch), 9 light single trikes and 4 double trikes.  PF1 pilots flew total 13 tasks and trikes 11 tasks.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Alex and Marie Mateos won the competition taking 1st (Alex) and 2nd (Marie) place. Both of them were flying with Viper 4 16. @marie_mateos @mateosalexandre ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Alex Mateos reports: “First of all, I am very happy with the performance of my equipment. Despite of tough condition and hot weather my engine was working really well. I am very impressed by speed and stability of my Viper 4 sometimes we were flying in a really strong wind, reaching speed up to 100 km/h! I started this competition a bit distracted, because I lost podium in French Championships in 2011 on the same airfield, it was the moment, when I first met Marie and fall in love” .
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Marie says: “I am very happy with my final results. I think I started this competition really focused not to make any mistake, even small, possibly demanding too much of myself. But during competition, I manage to relax a little bit and really enjoy 2nd part of the competition when I won pure eco task. I won 3 tasks.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big congratulations to all the pilots for their excellent results.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are pleased to see Ozone TriOx’s debut in classic competition. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Vincent Beutter / Pascal Malochet – 2nd
