What swing say: Advanced PPG pilots can look forward to new levels in stability, agility and speed. SWING’s paramotor brand POWERPLAY has developed the SCORPIO, the new reflex wing, and tested it according to the most exacting of considerations. In charge of this was multiple German champion and record holder Peter Schulz, who followed every step of development extremely carefully and thus had considerable input into the development of the SCORPIO.
The Wingland fun fly event is an annual gathering of microlight/ultralight pilots, model aircraft displays and flying. Everyone is welcome though, young and old, flyers and non-flyers, families and aviation nuts.

Free flying, free camping and free food. Just bring as much alcohol as you can handle.
We want to make this event even BIGGER and better than ever!!!
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..”
The Paramania GTX the bivouac generation is now here.
Under pressure, many prototypes later and several years on, the unsatisfied MCJ has finally become satisfied. His project to create the perfect wing for the “X”- country paramotor pilot and bivouac flying as well as the average club pilot out to travel is now finished.
As its cousin the GTR was specifically made to carve sharp turns, in slalom fun. The GTX is designed for comfortable, fast cruising over long distances. While also flying through rough air with minimum need for pilot input.
The GTX is ridiculously easy to launch, even on those wet mornings while loaded up with fuel and all the gear. It simply gets you off the ground quickly and efficiently every time.
The risers and trimmer system give a wide range of speed, but still maintain precise, light and progressive handling throughout. The GTX can be comfortably slowed for thermal efficiency with flatter turns.
Both the GTR and GTX are sharing the latest laminar flow MCJ reflex wing sections. Which include an integrated drag reduction system; made of carefully placed holes that equalize pressure at the trailing edge. The result is leading edge technology which has proven to be quite astounding. Therefore minimal power differences between the fast and slow speeds, a flat polar curve and increased efficiency.
