On 23 July 2006, 10 years ago, French pro paraglider Charles Cazaux set a FAI World Record when he reached 41.15 km/h in the category “Speed over a triangular course of 25km”. In April 2010 he broke his own FAI World Record with 46,8 km/h which has not been superseded. He holds still multiple FAI World Records and knowing him, we are sure more is about to come from the French Paragliding Champion.
