11th World Paramotor Championship – Saquarema – Brazil

After a four-year break, the 11th Paramotor World Championship was held in Brazil. Unfortunately, this time without presence of the Polish National Team. Nevertheless, Poland was represented by our paragliders, which helped many pilots achieve great results.

In the most prestigious PF1 category, Cyril Planton came second, and our close associate Jean-Emile Oulha came third, both representing France and both on Warps 2. CONGRATULATIONS!
