New National paragliding record: 161km on the Atlas in South Korea

On 21st April, Kang Hyuk Lim flew 161km on the GIN Atlas, the longest ever paragliding flight on the Korean peninsular.

The turbulent spring thermals, strong winds and mountainous terrain meant challenging conditions. Most pilots were grounded for the day.

But Lim, a highly experienced XC pilot, felt comfortable during the whole flight—despite groundspeeds of up to 90km/h. "It was the security and stability of the Atlas that made such a flight possible in these conditions. Thank you Gin Gliders, for producing a glider that is so wonderful to fly!", said Lim.
