the desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors- Orville Wright, Inventor & Aviation Pioneer
From the discovery of the first kites in China, to the earliest attempts to fly with wings made of feathers and wood; flight has been the oldest dream of mankind. For the young Gilo Cardozo, this fascination with human flight was the beginning of all his dreams. In fact, it was all he ever wanted to do.
The same child was always pulling his toys apart to discover how and why they worked. This mechanical mind coupled with the fascination for flight formed the basis of his lifelong endeavour to advance personal aviation.
Today, Gilo has joined the ranks of visionary inventors and engineers that have successfully translated their boyhood dreams into a reality. It is his passion and determination that defines what Parajet do as a company.
Parajet thrives on Gilo’s original belief that we can do better, that form follows function and that everything must serve a purpose. This spirit allows Parajet to continually push the edge and thrive in the sport.

To give life to a Parajet Powered Paraglider, our team of designers are given the ultimate resource for creative flow —a clean sheet of paper and a pencil. From early concept our designers spend most of their time sketching – empowered by Gilo's overall vision and free from convention – to progress the style and each functional element of the Powered Paraglider's design. The result is a unique and singular design statement that is styled to excel visually from every angle. Design rich in detail yet never over-complicated; that epitomises purity of vision and careful attention to detail that is just as exciting to look at as it is to experience.
Everything Should Be Made
As Simple As Possible, But Not Simpler—Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist
