Sky paragliders

Sky Paragliders is a paragliding brand (wings and harnesses) that has been around for years. SKY SERVIS was founded in Slovenia in 1988. It merged with its historical Czech partner to become SKY PARAGLIDERS. Over the years, the company has grown to become what it is today, offering a complete range of paragliders, rescue parachutes and other paragliding accessories. The head office and workshop are located in Frydlant nad Ostravici (Beskydy), where the company has developed. The limited capacity of the company was a hindrance to its development, so in 2002 the decision was made to build a new facility. The new factory was designed specifically for the assembly of paragliders. It is equipped with the most modern equipment and was inaugurated at the end of 2002. Since its inception, SKY has produced dozens of different paragliders, from the 9-cell paragliders of the late 1980s to the modern paragliders with their extremely complex rib and load distribution structures. Their modern paragliders can be found everywhere you can fly: school slopes, distance flights, tandem flights from the slopes of ski resorts, or even at world championships.
