New World Records Set by Dell Schanze

SUPERDELL warms up by free flying the tiny 11sm Morpheus custom made for the record by U-Turn.

Then after feeling confident in the safety and feasibility of the stunt he takes to the sky on the Flat Top Powered Skydiving unit and sets the new record for the smallest comp glider ever flown with a paramotor.

Check back often as he plans to set many more records in the near future.

Flight tests show the hard work paid off. The design turned out to be a phenominal innovation for ultralight aviation and a complete success on a global scale. SUPERDELL now considers accepting one lucky investor for his next project which he believes will dwarf all others. If you are interested in being a part of history and creativity beyond measure and have the funds and desire to go boldy where no man has gone before, then give him a call at 801-631-1731 or send an email to

SUPERDELL Invents a new aircraft!!!

Powered Skydiving, a new extreme sport invented by Dell Schanze makes history. The safest ultralight aircraft ever devised is ground tested by the designer himself on November 24, 2007. Exceeding his expectations this ultralight aircraft does not require a pilots license or any FAA registration to be flown. It is very versitile as it can be used with pretty much any paraglider and many skydiving & base jumping canopies. The unit is actually 2 aircraft in one, both a packpack version and a wheeled version. The packpack fits on the back of the Flat Top S-Trike for a wheeled launch to extend speed & range and when maximum portability is require or for very small launch areas the backpack can be flown by itself in a foot launch configuration.

SUPERDELL Base Jumps off Bridge with Team Redbull

"Woooo Hooooooo!!" SUPERDELL yells after jumping off Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls Idaho. Fellow extreme sports enthusiasts and the #1 & #2 ranked base jumpers in the world teamed up with Utah Celebrity Dell Schanze for a day of base jumping. "The dude has nadds of titanium the size of basketballs" was one comment "I've never seen anyone on a first jump take the leap without any hesitation at all like that before" said a long time local instructor. "Most people climb over the railing, climb back over the railing and take up to 30 minutes working themselves up to it before they jump. Many refuse to jump at all even after all the preparation and training"

"I don't even bother counting down" said SUPERDELL, "It drives me nuts to see people stand there for 20 minutes fighting with fear. After the final checks and the man says I'm good to go I just said ok and jumped. I went up there to jump, I already accepted the risks and made my mind up to do it, I said my prayers and got my confirmation from God so why be a big sissy? I'm the boss, fear is my employee. I make it work for me, not the other way around."

SUPERDELL throws 2 reserves; neither works!!!!!

Driven by sheer motivation for mastery, Dell Schanze works on the most difficult maneuvers in the sport of paragliding. While working on a maneuver known as the helicopter on a brand new, high performance, acrobatic paraglider; SUPERDELL messed up and didn’t check a surge fast enough after riser twist had him facing the opposite direction his paraglider was going. The surge flicked him towards his glider causing a major collapse which resulted in a cravat where the glider tangled beyond a point where it could be controlled. Immediately assessing the glider was no longer flyable, SUPERDELL threw his reserve. Instead of deploying correctly it was scooped up by the tangled glider and failed to open. Being very safety oriented SUPERDELL is one of the few pilots that fly with 2 reserves when practicing higher risk maneuvers. Without hesitation he grabbed his second reserve and tossed it. This also tangled in the main and failed to open. Now running out of altitude but determined by the challenge of the triple failure he vigorously worked to pull one of the reserves back in to attempt to force it open. With riser twists it was very difficult as everything was wrapped up together but after working it for several seconds he pulled one of the failed reserves within reach where he was able to get it open. It was still snagged in the other lines and instead of opening normally it opened inside out and with a tangle but it was enough to slow his decent for a safe landing in the water below.

When asked if he feared for his life he responded “Some people focus on stress of a conflict taking away their undivided attention on the problem which can dramatically hamper their ability to react effectively under pressure, others are filled with excitement and see a challenge that is fun and completely satisfying to overcome. To me it was a total blast and I was filled with confidence and peace through the entire experience. I wasn’t thinking about living or dying, laughing or crying. I had a job to do and a short deadline and I don’t fail. I expect to succeed at whatever I do. I didn’t waste a single second on how I felt about the problem or the way in which it was placed upon me. I just did what needed to be done and was enthusiastic and happy about doing it.”

Dell Schanze sets another world record!!!

On September 4th of 2007 Dell Schanze set a new world record for a Powered Skydiving Trike by reaching an altitude of 15,833 ft. Flying only a 21sm glider he stated he could have gone much higher on a normal 31sm glider so this record is only the beginning.

I had a total blast flying today. You gotta try this!!!

Product testing of the worlds best PPG equipment

Product testing! Putting equipment through the worst possible conditions so I can know it is bommer before selling them. I've been waiting quite awhile for the worst weather possible and finally got my chance to fly in a really wild snowstorm.
