Horacio Llorens is a pioneer of aerobatic Paragliding and is a five-time world champion. In 2012, Llorens broke the infinity tumbling world record completing 568 revolutions after jumping from a helicopter at 19,700 feet (6000 meters) above the Mayan ruins in Guatemala experiencing 6G with every rotation.

The Paramotor, a remarkable motorized paraglider, serves as a powered flying device, expertly driven by a compact two-stroke engine secured to the pilot's back. To initiate take-off, the pilot begins with a running start and subsequently engages the paramotor's thrust by utilizing a hand-held throttle, propelling it to gain lift and gracefully take to the skies.
