Celebration after completing a water tower on expedition in Ecuador
Below is footage of paramotors being used on expedition in Bolivia in 2007.
They were piloted by Mark Williams and the late Dean Eldridge and were used to seek out new routes and water sources, to enable the expedition to move further forward in the savanah.
The two paramotors flew up to 30 miles out from base camp, often over dense jungle, with little hope of being located if they had come down.
They made a huge contribution to the success of the expedition, which located a meteorite buried deep underground.
JBS is mounting two new expeditions in 2016:
- Sierra Nevada, Colombia in February 2016. This expedition is now full although we are running a reserve list.
- Mongolia in July 2016. There are still spaces available on this expedition.
