Frank Bustgens, Marketing Director for Opale Paramodels, was demonstrating the miniature powered paragliders at AMA Expo West in Ontario, CA late last year. He told Aero-News CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell that the company has been making the aircraft since 2009, and was introducing them now into the U.S. Market. Bustgens said the airfoils come in both single-layer and double-layer configurations for different flight characteristics. There are different motor sizes to allow for indoor or outdoor flight. The aircraft can be configured with wheels or without, and the pilots come in different sizes making the weight of the aircraft variable.

Safety considerations and government restrictions related to COVID-19 have caused the cancellation of many air shows across North America in 2020. The U.S. military continues to have restrictions on non-essential travel and state restrictions on large group gatherings have forced all air shows scheduled prior to June 30 to postpone or cancel. Many shows later in the year have also cancelled or postponed their events until next year.

To further comply with CDC recommendations, the 2020 air show has no center point, which allows the footprint to be expanded substantially.
