Richard Gallon, one of the first pioneers of acro paragliding and a Paragliding World Cup legend has passed away on his 47th birthday (12th Jun 2020) after battling sickness over the past years...
Richard started to paraglide in Saint Hilaire du Touvet, France at the age of 12. Only 20 years old, in 1993 he became Paragliding World Cup champion. Together with the Rodriguez brothers he was one of the founders of the Safety Acro Team that took the most significant part in the early evolution of the sport. He also founded AirG Products with the vision to provide affordable wings for this small market.
We will truly miss his ever positive vibes and uplifting spirit...
Rest in peace brother...
