You may have heard of dancing fountains, but now it’s about dancing “with” fountains! Paragliding pros Horacio Llorens and Rafael Goberna had to push their own limits to perform this spectacular flight in Dubai.
Horacio Llorens and RafaelGoberna teamed up to take part in an exclusive shoot to showcase the beautiful Palm Fountain at the Pointe, Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.
And as expected, the final outcome was a whole lot of fun, not to mention the capture of some spectacular content. Llorens and Goberna donned special paramotors to take to the sky; gliding between the fountain’s jets of water that were so close they could feel them!
“All the projects have different approaches. Sometimes you get inspired by something spectacular; other times you get contacted about an amazing location where the potential is huge,” explains Llorens. “This was the case with The Pointe and Atlantis The Palm. When we went last December for the location check, and they showed us the area and the fountains, I said: ‘We have to make it happen, this is the best ever place for a night shoot project!’”
The project was managed and sponsored by Red Bull UAE.
Famous YouTuber and big Ozone fan – Tucker Gott – shares his first impression while flying Mojo Power 2 24.
In the video he says: “There is something about flying a Mojo, it is just so easy, so stable, so slow and relaxed… What makes the Mojo so special, a lot of it has to do with it’s just passive safety, collapse-wise it just wants to fly, it wants to re-inflate and fly and send you on your marry way…
The Mojo is not the wing, which is going to win an Icarus Trophy X-Country Race or slalom competition, but it is likely the wing that you will take your first steps into the sky under. When you take off for the first time and you are scared, your brain is pegged out, you don’t know your lefts from your rights, and your ups from your downs, this is a wing you want to be under to keep you safe. And, even if you are not a beginner, it is a fun glider for an advanced pilot to get on and throw around”
Mojo PWR 2 is an EN-A certified, non-reflex, versatile wing for both free flying and powered flight. It is suitable for students in training but ideal for the newly qualified. It is reliable and dependable, perfect for pilots who require an easy, safe and solid wing for their first 100s hours of paramotor experience as well as paragliding ridge soaring, thermalling and XC flying.
The Roadrunner is an easy to use and highly forgiving paraglider that is designed specifically, and only, for ground-handling training. It is optimized for use in wind speeds that are too high to practice with a standard sized paraglider, but is also easy to use in light or zero wind conditions.
Schools will love the ease of use and the cost-savings. Save your „flight” wings for flying, instead of wearing them out for ground-handling. The Roadrunner was designed from the start with price in mind, with the goal to increase training efficiency while lowering costs for schools.
Kids love it too! Introduce younger and lighter pilots to the joys of kiting.
Aereas (Aerials) is a series of films produced by Ozone team pilot Sylvestre Campe for Brazilian TV channel Canal Off. Sylvestre, together with another Ozone team pilot Kester Haynes are traveling in search of the most extraordinary and challenging places to fly a paramotor. Each episode is a real story with its up and downs as nothing has been staged. The films show pure paramotor adventures and incredible flights, which simply inspire to fly more, travel more, and explore more. I hope you enjoy it. Each episode is 20 min long in English and Portuguese.
In Episode 1 Sylvestre and Kester travel together to the Philippines to fly over Mount Pinatubo, Vulcano notorious for its eruption in 1991, the second-largest terrestrial eruption of the 20th century. Sylvestre lands out due to motor cut!
We are planning to publish one episode per week on IGTV, Ozone Power Fb page and Ozone Paragliders Vimeo Channel.
Ozone Team pilot Pal Takats was part of the Red Bull Air-Race series performing paramotor displays in different locations around the World. He flew in Ascot Racetrack (UK), city center of Budapest in Hungary, Chiba in Japan, Las Vegas, Abu Dhabi and many other wonderful places. He edited this short video showing small part of many incredible shows he performed over last 4 years! “I spent 4 years on tour with this event, good times in 9 countries and 3 continents. Thank you Red Bull!” says Pal
Szybkopaki tzw. “stuff bag” są bardzo popularne wśród pilotów latających z napędem, a jednym z najczęściej zadawanych nam pytań jest to, jak pakować skrzydło tak aby nie uszkodzić syntetycznych rdzeni wbudowanych na krawędzi natarcia. Oto Lorran Michaels wyjaśniający swoją metodę.
Aby przedłużyć żywotność skrzydła i utrzymać syntetyczne rdzenie i dodatkowe wzmocnienia na krawędzie natarcia w jak najlepszym stanie, bardzo ważne jest ostrożne pakowanie skrzydła. Ozone zaleca stosowanie metody pakowania harmonijkowego, aby wszystkie cele spoczywały obok siebie, a plastikowe wzmocnienia nie były niepotrzebnie wygięte. Korzystanie z Light Ozone Saucisse pomoże przedłużyć żywotność skrzydła, przyspieszy i ułatwi pakowanie.
