Manufacturers get involved in the fight
The Russian kite manufacturer Elf and the Ukrainian company producing kites under the Aeros brand decided to join forces and prepare for the Olympics in 2024 a new generation of parafoils under the common Aeros / Elf brand.
A new line of kites produced in Ukraine, ranging from 8 to 22 sq.m. Already approved by the IKA Technical Committee as standard equipment for the IKA Formula Kite Class.

Until the end of 2021, kites will be tested at competitions and, in the case of positive feedback, perhaps the manufacturers will receive a World Sailing license for the preparation of Olympic equipment by 2024.
