On 26 October 2015, Frenchman Julien Irilli and his sister Emilie flew a Niviuk Bi Peak 3 tandem for 363km in Brazil. It’s a pending World record for ‘free distance using up to three turnpoints’, and is with the FAI for ratification.
It was the pair’s first flight of their trip to Quixadá, and was ten hours in duration. If ratified, the record it will beat is Brazilian Felix Falko Fisher’s 258km record from November 2013, also from Quixadá.
The tracklog for Julien and Emilie’s flight can be seen here.
