The U.S. Paramotor Team has a respectable result for their first-ever entry | Original Press Release
The pylons are packed, scores tabulated and pilots back in their respective countries. It was an emotionally charged contest that provided the drama one would expect when pilots put their best efforts forward. It was an incredible blast, an enormous undertaking, stressful and rewarding. The July Issue of UltraFlight magazine will have coverage and pictures.
Congrats to all three pilots, Jeff Goin, Chad Bastian and Stan Kasica who just returned from their 10-day Italian mission to represent our country. David Rogers and his wife Carmen gave much-appreciated help as crew members.
This was a highlight of the pilots experience in paramotoring. Hopefully others will choose to represent the U.S. and let shine some of the talent we have to offer.
Thanks to those who contributed. We were able to offset their travel expenses by just over $600. It means a lot to the pilots.
