Ever want to fly like a bird? Touch the clouds? Get a view from above?
Anatoly Cohn, CEO of Israel's APCO Aviation (http://www.apcoaviation.com), shares that dream. After getting deported from Russia in the 1970s, he set up business in Israel making hang gliders and now heads one of the world's most successful brands in paramotoring and paragliding equipment.
APCO has dealers in more than 60 countries, and 15 world records have been set using APCO gliders. The company is also famous for its Mayday reserve parachute system, which has saved hundreds of paragliders and hang gliders in trouble.
