Testimonials on our Glider Shop
I wanted to send you a brief email thanking you for the incredible repair work you did on my glider.
Also, I can't thank you enough for getting the glider repaired in less than a week. Superior service!
"Paratour repair services really helped me to get back into the skies.
On two occasions I have used Paratour and Elisabeth’s services.
The first was to replace a line that the sheathing had torn on and the other to fix a tear that happened in transport.
Elisabeth emailed me a diagram to identify the line and had it to me in a few days. Turnaround time on the repair was less than 10 days with excellent communication and quality of work.
You couldn’t even tell that there was ever a foot long tear after I received the wing back, totally invisible.
I highly recommend Elisabeth’s services and look forward to meeting Eric.

"I am very impressed with their professionalism and friendliness, they always reply my emails promptly and turn around time for gliders repair and inspection is commendable. The workmanship for repairs is impeccable.
"I have had a few mishaps in the past, mostly due to snagging roots and such and getting small tears. They have always repaired these quickly and to perfection.
Then one day it happened. I executed a beautiful turnaround on my reverse launch starting running, got the motor up to speed and tripped.
Well, needless to say by the time I hit the kill switch it was a little too late. I examined my paraglider and there were two huge holes in the middle.
Off it went to them and a week later back it came. Perfect!!! I still have a hard time finding the patches. It fly's perfectly!
This is truly a master at here craft!"

"As requested, I am calling to give you some feedback on the Dudek wing that you repaired for me this summer.
I admit that I had 'doubts' about your choice of colors for the repair on my wing. I have flown the repaired wing for some 3 months now and, very simply,
couldn't be any happier.
Not only does the wing perform flawlessly, but the repair looks as though it could have come that way straight from the factory...as nothing more than a styling cue.
Obviously, safety is first priority, but, lets face it... most of us want to look good as well.
I am not only impressed with the superior quality of the repair... but also, most impressed with your intuition regarding this particular repair. Mimicking the semicircles that are already on wing tips was very clever indeed.
I showed my wing to other pilots, and they couldn't figure out where the repair was..... they kept looking and kept looking, but the repair itself looked like part of the factory design!!
Super Job!! I will recommend your services to all that ask.

Video Ennis Zajmi flying his repair glider at home:
"After a month of ground handling and bad weather I completed m lessons. My first attempt at flight was not looking good and was aborted. I managed to bring my brand new ParaToys 28 down into my still spinning prop."
A few near-by seasoned pilots commented I would be purchasing a new wing do to my mishap. All this happened at the Salton Sea fly-in and I was lucky enough to turn my recently devoured wing over to them.
They said they would in fact be able to repair it and at huge savings over purchasing a new wing. A very short while later I had the wing back with a new panel that is virtually unnoticeable.
I have since taken my first flight and it flew straight and true as I would imagine it would have before I pulverized it.
I trust and highly recommend them for any wing repairs. I hope I don't ever have to repair another wing, but if I do, I know I will be in good hands!
"Thank you so much for the outstanding work you did to my glider.
"I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did with my wing. Its only a year old and if I hadn't noticed
some frayed strings, I may not have sent it in for repairs. But you made the process simple and easy.
I expected to be grounded for several weeks. But you completed your inspection and repairs in just two days, and had it back in the mail that evening. It certainly made me feel good to know I would have it back within a week.
And when I received it, it was clean, and carefully folded, like a new wing. I was very impressed. You certainly have made the inspection process quick and painless.
Thanks for the nice job,"
“When I caught all the lines on the left side of my paraglider in the prop of my new XCitor I thought the wing was garbage.
