Here atParamania, we strive to produce fun wings, which are a pleasure to fly whatever level of pilot you are. We are a team of passionate paramotorists who love the simplicity and beauty of the sport.
Some wing manufacturers, who without understanding the full relationship between wing and motor, are converting free flying wings into paramotoring wings. It was the same for hangliders; in the beginning people were using normal free flying, non-reinforced hangliders for power. Then along came specifically designed wings that took the sport into new highs.
Paramaniachallenges the boundaries of practical design, and produces just such wings. Our products are renowned for their extreme stability, giving pilots confidence yet retaining the dynamic feeling which makes paramotoring so enjoyable.
Mike Campbell-Jonesis a key figure in our design team being a pioneer of ultra light aviation design (Spectrum Ultra Light). His experience with the Reflex section is the key to our powergliders stability and performance. Mike is also a top PPG competition pilot and has directed numerous international competitions all over the world.
Mike also designs for several other power aircraft manufacturers to help develop innovation in design that evolves our sport. Mike Campbell-Jones is the inventor of the revolutionary (patentented)TECconstruction method that will soon be used by a handful of the major Ram-Air chute manufacturers.
Pascal is in charge of Paramania's marketing (videos, website, exhibitions, promotions etc) and puts all the projects into action. He is a keen competition and factory test pilot Pascal is also a gifted display pilot and occasionally flies with the European display team and Parabatix.
Activities:I like almost everything to do with flying! Paramotoring and paragliding is the most liberating of them all for me! I also enjoy motorbiking, kite buggying and diving (when the weather is not flyable ;-)
Likes:I like traveling, meeting good people, relaxing, music!
Dislikes: Bullshit, flying when I would rather be on the ground, big hairy spiders.
Memorable Flight / Moment:Paramotoring way up in the Atlas mountains in Morocco. Flying in Thailand following a river deep in a jungle with nowhere to land apart from the odd settlement (with Julius, George and Mathieu)
Fav foods:Thai food! Tom Yum kung mmmmm mm
Fav Music:I like all sorts of music from 2manyDjs to Beethoven to Ben Harper, and when i get a chance i like to mix it up on my decks!
