Air Conception Nitro XL

One year on and possibly the most influential engine ever released to the paramotor world in recent times. 

The interweb chatter on social media sites, forums and talk on the field is where I hear about the nitro engine. What I hear though is good news, no complaining, just praise. It’s a first for paramotoring as we can be a harsh bunch when new products arrive. 

1st was the pull start Nitro 11.3kg which was later followed by an even more popular electric start nitro at only 11.7kg… What ever next?

Well one year on and Air Conception are here to break new ground again. Using the now well known Nitro engine they have adopted an extraordinary 165cm paramotor frame. Yes you read that right. 1 6 5 cm (1.65m)!! Why so large, why such a jump in size. 


Utilising their alloy delta frame 165cm hoop allows for the fitting of a 150cm prop, not any prop, a high aspect, light weight carbon e-prop using their most efficient blade technology. 

This creates a number of improvements. Greatly improved fuel economy, less noise and increased thrust. Some numbers have been put out from the manufacturer, less than 2lph cruising, reduced noise at level flight from lower rpm, plus a healthy 80kg thrust. E-prop has already been tested to show noise reductions of up to 10db, adding to this the 150cm requires low engine rpm for level flight, then it is sure to be quieter which is great for everyone. 
Air Conception are on a roll this year, launched to stardom with the Nitro, we wait with keen interest to see what they bring next. 

One thing we know of that is next in line is a clutched version of the electric start nitro and already some pilots are queuing.

Parafest 3-5th June 2016 UK Paramotor Fly-in Festival & Trade Show

parafest paramotor festival & trade show

PARAFEST 2016 – An event not to be missed

Parafest is the UK’s only trade exhibition for paragliding and paramotor aviation.
Manufacturers, dealers and schools will be attending with their full range for display and demo.
You can meet the experts and ask your questions to the people who know the answers.

Based in North Wales for its country central location, its close proximity to some great paragliding sites and with a field reserved for paramotor flying pilots will enjoy breathtaking views along the North Wales coast into Snowdonia National Park and beyond.
Whether you’re a seasoned pilot, a new pilot or a wannabee pilot Parafest has it all in one great location, close to the coast and surrounded by the natural beauty of North Wales.

Hang glider pilots, powered or unpowered, this is also for you. It’s all foot launched flying fun.

Parfaits field is just a 5 minute flight from the coast. With its smooth sea breeze and big sandy beaches the coastline is a paramotor pilot’s paradise.
You can follow the coastline from Talacre beach with its deserted lighthouse, past the holiday towns of Prestatyn, Rhyl and Abergele all the way to Llandudno and its pier.
Fly over the Great Orme and give a wave to the skiers and toboggan riders on the dry slope or you can fly inland to the summit of Snowdon, less than 30 miles away as the paramotor flies. From the coast to the flatlands or into the mountains, Parafest has it all.

You will need a ticket to enter, to purchase tickets and for more information follow the link to the organisers website: http://www.parafest.co.uk

Air Conception release the Nitro 200cc engine

Long time in development this promising looking engine in an astonishing achievement of light weight and power.

At only 11.8kg and boasting 74kg thrust with 125cm prop. This makes it the lightest engine giving over 70kg thrust.

Photo below is a prototype model.

nitro 190

Spec: 28hp @ 8100 rpm, Pull Start, Belt Drive with a reduction of 1:2.7, the tiny silencer comes with an integrated Db killer.

With Air Conception having a reputation for reliability from their 130cc engines we have high hopes for this 200cc.

Coupled to their titanium paramotor quoting all up weight of only 19kg, it is another first in this power band.
