We would like to congratulate British team pilot, Michel Carnet on his outstanding result at the 2009 World Paramotor Championships, winning the Gold Medal in the PF1 footlaunch category using the new Bailey Aviation 4V paramotor. This is Michels 3rd podium position in the World Championships, held every 2 years, all achieved using Bailey Aviation paramotors.
After 10 days of gruelling tasks, the British Team had put in a fantastic performance, running neck and neck with the Czech national team and narrowly missed gold position by only 94 points, finishing with a silver medal.
Congratulations to Michel and the rest of the British team for such a world class performance !
The 2009 World Paramotor Championships were held in the town of Nove Mesto Nad Metuji in the Czech Republic from 20th July to 9th August. The British Team members were selected by the UK PPG Competition Committee, based on their results in the UK National Championships and their performances throughout the year.
The competition brought together over 120 pilots from 18 different countries to battle for supremacy throughout its 11 days of challenging tasks. The British Team were well prepared, with a strong team of world class pilots with 6 Bailey Aviation Paramotors in the team for the PF1 footlaunch category.
