Nova have announced the pilots that will be joining their team for 2015.
The 20 new members include junior pilots, female newcomers and experienced pilots, plus there is a whole new team of eight French pilots captained by Sebastien Fiastre who will be scoring points in the CFD, the French cross-country league.
Nova first set up their now infamous team in 2006, and it has always focused on team spirit and networking as much as rankings and cross-country league scores, many of its pilots flying the EN-B Mentor.
Team captain Till Gottbrath explains:
We hope, of course, that our team pilots fly well with high rankings in the XC contests. But even more important is to exhibit the fascination and excitement of paragliding. This includes socialising, being helpful, openness and the willingness to share their knowledge and experience. If you ever meet one of our team pilots on the take-off, in the landing zone or the pub, don’t hesitate to chat with them.
