If you like heights your going to love this video. If you don't, it's going to scare the hell out of you. Twin brothers Ant and Tim Green have just gone higher than two people have ever been before on a paramotor (higher than some types of planes!) and they did it above the iconic summit of Mont Blanc in the French Alps. In order to set the new world record the Americans tricked out their high-end parachutes and motors in order to get themselves soaring where even birds fear to fly. Even with seriously high-end gear they needed the right weather and especially the right winds to eventually reach a dizzying height of 5066m.

These guys have done with a paramotor what Hundreds of pilots, including tandem pilots have done paragliding( without engine), flying with thermals. I do not see any kind of interesting record in such a performance. Lame. They're dressed like if they'd climb up the Everest whereas flying above the Mont-Blanc is something that every paralglider pilot with a few years of experience can do when the conditions are there. check out by yourself : https://vimeo.com/48351310, august 2012, hundreds of pilots took off in Chamonix and in Switzerland and made their way up to the top of Mont Blanc thermaling (some went higher than 5100m). This record is no record.
