Sierra Nevada: an exciting adventure – Jean Francois Chabaud

“Just after I finished my 6,000 miles Paramotor Adventure, I was invited to participate in a tour of the Sierra Nevada with two other pilots.

We all used Vittorazi Moster 185 engines (Two Scouts and one Parajet).  We all had the same quality of equipment”.
