Pal Takats and his co-pilot Gabor Kezi attempt the first ever tandem infinite tumble. As the first Tandem-Duo in the world, they attempt a real loop with their bi-place-parachute in Walensee (Lake of Walen) in Switzerland.

The adventure started high in the mountains in approx. 5900 ft., where the fields where green and the surrounding amazing. After take off they were able to do 45 loops in a row, flying straight with the parachute. With that first premier, the test pilots from U-Turn showed what Aerodynamics never expected. Real loops with a parachutes are possible, not only with hard wings.

"Of course, the borders of physics are set, but where exactly we still have to find out," says Ernst Strobl, Chef-Developer of U-turn. With a modified Acrobatic-Parachute, Takats, one of the world bests acrobatic-pilots, already did various loops, called Infinity Tumbles.

It was really tough. "Due to longer lines, the way to pass for both pilots was even longer each loop." Takats explains. For us it was about 6 G. For the parachute it was even more, up to 12 G, which is a real challenge for the material.
