GIN history: Flying the Nasca lines

In 2005, the GIN Team took a rare break from R&D and competition flying to travel to Peru. The trip took them from Lima city to the beaches of Paracas and the mountains of Cusco. The highlight of the trip was their flight over the Nasca lines, where they overcame local bureaucracy and logistical challenges to become the first paragliding pilots ever to do fly over this treasured site.

Looking back, we remember the sights and sounds but especially the precious time shared with our departed friends, Mathias Roten and Norman Lausch.

The film of the experience was previously released on DVD and is now officially available online. Enjoy!
