parafest paramotor festival & trade show

PARAFEST 2016 – An event not to be missed

Parafest is the UK’s only trade exhibition for paragliding and paramotor aviation.
Manufacturers, dealers and schools will be attending with their full range for display and demo.
You can meet the experts and ask your questions to the people who know the answers.

Based in North Wales for its country central location, its close proximity to some great paragliding sites and with a field reserved for paramotor flying pilots will enjoy breathtaking views along the North Wales coast into Snowdonia National Park and beyond.
Whether you’re a seasoned pilot, a new pilot or a wannabee pilot Parafest has it all in one great location, close to the coast and surrounded by the natural beauty of North Wales.

Hang glider pilots, powered or unpowered, this is also for you. It’s all foot launched flying fun.

Parfaits field is just a 5 minute flight from the coast. With its smooth sea breeze and big sandy beaches the coastline is a paramotor pilot’s paradise.
You can follow the coastline from Talacre beach with its deserted lighthouse, past the holiday towns of Prestatyn, Rhyl and Abergele all the way to Llandudno and its pier.
Fly over the Great Orme and give a wave to the skiers and toboggan riders on the dry slope or you can fly inland to the summit of Snowdon, less than 30 miles away as the paramotor flies. From the coast to the flatlands or into the mountains, Parafest has it all.

You will need a ticket to enter, to purchase tickets and for more information follow the link to the organisers website: http://www.parafest.co.uk

APCO NRG specifically designed slalom racing wing – Video

APCO’s new 18 and 20m slalom racing wing.

from APCO “The APCO NRG is the “Bad Boy” in Apco’s Paramotor wings family. Like your kid brother, it’s small but with a lot of attitude. It is a specifically designed slalom racing wing that’s also fun to just play around with. Speed and handling characterize this wing but it’s real virtues are stability and safety in extreme maneuvers. We are proud of this wing and are sure you will be too..”
