Sun Gliders – Clarification

Sun Gliders' website

Hernan Pitocco and Horacio Llorens on Sun Gliders' website

We reported online on 12 July 2010 that Korean brand Sun Gliders had been bought and was moving to India. We are happy to make clear that this is not the case.

Sun Gliders is an established paragliding company in Korea and is staying that way. They offer a full range of paragliders for both paragliding and paramotoring, as well as a full range of harnesses.

Sun Paragliders is a new paragliding company that is setting up head office in India.

We are happy to make it clear that Sun Gliders (HQ Korea) and Sun Paragliders (HQ India) are in no way related. The company’s similar names led to the confusion. The original story posted online has been taken down to avoid  further confusion.

    Hello guys, Good that the clarification has been done, we just saw mails from the dealers today about the previous news. So we wanted to intimate you about the confusion here happy that it has been cleared before that. We have bought this company and factory from Seychelles and now settling up in South India. We are hiring new designers, test pilots and the process is on. We will be launching our products in the starting of 2011 and all our products will be EN certified.
