Ozone

The OZONE Team is comprised of pilots, including World and National Champions; they are all passionate free fliers that love the simplicity and beauty of free flight.

Flying is fun, it’s your sport and you should enjoy it. OZONE’s philosophy is to give you state-of-the-art performance from paragliders that are safe and a pure pleasure to fly, whatever level of pilot you are.

For the past decade paraglider design and development has been driven by the competition pilot’s need for more performance above everything else. This has led to paraglider manufacturers ploughing huge amounts of their resources into developing designs for a tiny percentage of the world’s pilots. OZONE concentrates the vast majority of its research and development resources on certified paragliders for everyone to enjoy.

OZONE’s design brief is simple. We produce gliders that are safe and give pilots confidence, yet retain the dynamic feeling which makes flying enjoyable. We are pushing all of our R&D into developing the handling characteristics, sensitivity and safety of our paragliders at the speeds we normally fly at. We also believe in testing our wing’s True Performance, and we are confident that each of the paragliders that we release to the public perform well in true conditions – not only on paper. The true performance of your wing is a far greater asset than any theoretical performance edge – ask any of the many pilots who have flown our gliders to wins all over the world.

Jiri Flight

Jiri flew from sandpach the other day. His plan was to make it to Salmon Holes where my dad was fishing. That way he would get a lift back with him.

Conditions were light and challenging but he made it all the way to the Bold Head. The end of that beautiful coast line. First time ever, now we know it is possible !!

He flew back from Bold Head to Salmon Holes, but my dad was gone, the flight took just over 2 hours to complet. I went to pick him up. Awesome flight, well done Jiri.

You can see below his flight track, if you have  google Earth it gets even better, it can be in 3D!!!

The flight path is shown on the image below (click to see a larger image), or open the file here on Google Drive to get more details. You can also download it then open using Google Earth to see altitude during the flight.
