U-Turn Acro Team pilots Cesar Arevalo and Andres Villamizar win overall world cup synchro

The Acro Team has now won the overall World Cup in synchronized competition. ‘We congratulate the exceptional pilots Cesar Arevalo and Andres Villamizar on this success.’ says founder Thomas Vosseler about the gold medal.

Arevalo and Villamizar gave outstanding performances during the final World Cup in Albania, which allowed them to climb to the top of the podium. Synchronous acrobatics is considered the supreme discipline in the paragliding world since the difficult figures have to be flown in cooperation with the partner within a choreography. The two pilots use the particularly dynamic ‘Joker’ competition wing, which is available in closely graded sizes. In the individual World Cup, Arevalo from Colombia took 5th place overall. ‘I will train even harder and more frequently to achieve a podium place in the individual races in the coming season’ says the highly talented U-Turn pilot. Vosseler sees the success as confirmation of the company’s constant research and development work in cooperation with chief designer Ernst Strobl ‘It’s a bit like in Formula 1: the findings from the high-performance area are of course also incorporated into the development of our series gliders, which become safer and safer for hobby pilots.
