Many of you may already be familiar with the ten young men who make up the highly popular Paradigm Aerobatic Team, which was born at Oshkosh, and keeps returning for more of their enthusiastic receptions at the world’s largest annual air show. But, whether you know about them or not, it’s fun to watch their spectacular performances on their powered parachutes (paragliders), or as they are more officially defined: “PARAMOTORS.”
This year was no exception as the seven active exhibition Team members put on a show that certainly lived up to expectations – if not more – with their uniquely choreographed performances in their fan powered parachutes, or as thy call the machines, their “Paramotors“. The below video is just less than 13 minutes in length and fun to watch. Videographer, Brett Thomas, shot the spectacular performance of the young team, splicing in some amazing in-flight “selfie” footage of a team member doing a long series of continuous loops and other astounding maneuvers.
