The World Games 2017 - Paramotors

paramotors

Paramotoring (also known as powered paragliding) enables the pilot to take off from level ground unassisted and climb to altitude; there is no need to launch from a hill or high ground.

Paramotor units typically weigh 30kg; after a short take-off run of 10-20m this weight is carried by the wing. The pilot sits in a chair-type harness, controlling the engine output with a hand throttle lever.

The World Games 2017 - Glider Aerobatics

The Glider Aerobatics competition is a test of the pilot’s ability to perform a pre-planned programme of spectacular aerobatic manoeuvres whilst managing the glider’s energy.

The silent and graceful manoeuvres are blended together in a sequence aimed at impressing the judges with the pilot’s precise handling skills. His ability to manage the glider’s speed, energy and position within the “box” is of paramount importance to obtaining a winning score. This sport is particularly successful and popular in Poland.
