Airlinks Quest, kezako?

Airlinks Quest’s goal is to push our limit and set new world record!

Both french team member, world champion, we became partner for our flying project! After 3 years, we already set 13 records!

Our mission is to train ourself to be ready to break speed and distance world record. We should train to improve our concentration, choice, handling, endurance and patience to be able to fly more than 10 hours, reach 100 km/h ground speed, flying over 4000 m high!

During our 2015 expedition in Australia, we set 4 new world record with a daily story post on the web for our followers.

Now, this adventure will continue around the world to explore new place, share our passion and achieve great performance!

Out of 18 possible world record in each category (woman, overall, tandem), Seiko did 10 of them which is already a record itself in the air sport history. Charles did 3 as well.

Paragliding is a non motorized air sport using as energy the sun and the wind. Sun provides thermal activity to make climb possible.

Icare myth, ecology, dream are link to our sport.

  • Speed record

We have to prepare a really precise task to make this kind of record and prepare the route. Then, it needs to wait for the best weather , take off and fly as fast as possible on this task!

  • Distance record

Fixed goal needs to be declared before take off. Free distance just needs to fly as far as possible!

  • Altitude record

For this one, we need the biggest altitude difference between the lowest and the highest point of our flight.

Paragliding energy efficiency is amazing.  Our daily calorie intake is approximately 2800 kcal, while 1 litre of gasoline contains 8400 kcal.  If you do 400 km of flight in one day, it is equivalent to 0.3 L of gasoline energy consumption, or 0,08 L per 100 km.  Our goal is to lower this fuel consumption down to 0.05 L per 100 km.   This translates to fly 1800 km with equivalent of 1 L of gas, or 600 km in one day flight distance.
