APCO announces a new intiative, sponsoring a campaign to conquer the Paragliding World Record – open distance or declared goal (free flight) – to be made on a standard APCO certified product from the current range.
An unheard of prize of US $25,000 in cash, will be paid to the pilot breaking the world record. The record(s) must be FAI approved, fully documented and followed by a well written story and collection of nice, print quality photos featuring APCO products used for the new record.
APCO will also handsomely reward a good story with attractive photos telling of the attempt to break World Record on an APCO current wing – even if it was unsuccessful and just ended up with remarkable flights -publishable in the media.
For pilots needing to obtain an APCO wing to make an attempt to break the World Record – a special deal will be offered.
- New World Record Cross Country Open Distance (Absolute) Solo Pilot: $10,000
- New World Record Cross Country Open Distance Solo Female Pilot: $3,000
- Other World Records (Male/Female Solo Pilot, Paramotor and Tandem): $2,000
(not absolute open distance)
