This film shows the modern facility where BGD gliders are made in Sri Lanka.
Includes nice images of the Laser cutter and inflation inspection system, as well as showing the excellent working conditions in the factory.
Stop by and visit the BGD Team on the Super Paragliding Testival in Kössen taking place from 29.05.2014 to 01.06.2014. If there is bad weather, the alternative date will be 19.-22.06.2014. We will be there with a lot of demo gliders for you to testfly.
We are looking forward to meet you there.
A big congratulations to David Chaumet for flying his Tala ML from Azinha in Sierre de Estrela, Portugal to just north of Segovia in Spain.
David said three of them launched at 12:30 and conditions were stable at first with an inversion at 1500m making it difficult to leave the area of the Sierrra. They did not really get going until 2 hours later when the unstable air before a front approached and broke the inversion. Cloudbase was at 3500m with a 25-30 km/h tailwind at cloudbase making the conditions very nice to fly. It is the first time such a flight has been done in pleasant conditions without too much wind or over development.
News about BGD paramotor wings will now be kept up to date on a daily basis on the BGD Paramotor Blog.
Picture shows the Luna22 is being tested now by the BGD team which is both faster, lighter and brighter than its larger brother, with the lovely new Brazil colour scheme.
