Pal Takats: On risk and reward

Pal-Takats-Abu-Dhabi

The biggest hairdo in flying is now the main display pilot for the Red Bull Air Race series. In Cross Country issue 169, May 2016, Ed Ewing talks to Pal Takats about the risks and rewards in paragliding and paramotoring. As someone who has given almost everything to the sport he knows what he’s talking about.

The serious demands of paramotor display flying at the Air Race provide a new high-level challenge. “The Air Race is kind of a special event, because it’s a really, really tight schedule,” he explains. “It’s a really serious operation, so it’s very stressful, probably the most stressful event in my entire life.”
