airG's history

In 2011 Gallon decided to set up his own manufacturing company. His extensive knowledge, experience and understanding of the sport led to the creation of AirG, and the authentic style of his leadership, combined with the company’s sophisticated product range, has turned AIRG into a force to be reckoned with.

AIRG´s wings are characterized by their smooth but robust flying style. The “Emilie”, AIRG´s Acrowing, has, in cooperation with some of the worlds best pilots, been turned into a superior, outstanding wing, much loved by all. The Emilie is a wing that has contributed massively to the company’s success, and proved its reliability by winning several World Championship titles.

We devlope. We improve. We aim to enhance your flying experience by continously refining our products

The Emilie, in its bigger sizes, is extreemly relieable and is considered to be one of the safest acro wings on the market, making it the ideal choice for flyers wanting to explore the world of Acrobatic Paragliding.

Richard, with his uncomplicated, individual style, managed to become a leading player in the manufacture of Acro Paragliding products within the space of 5 years.
However, in 2016, Richard decided to focus on his family and to put his considerable energy into being a full-time pilot again.

Selling his firm to one of the “major-players” was not an option for him, as he felt it would have changed the spirit of AIRG. Therefore, he decided to give his company to two young, like-minded Acropilots from Innsbruck, Simon Klemenc and Johannes Glatz who, since 2017 have not just taken care of the company but taken it to new heights.
