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 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

EOS 100 Paramotor Engine for PPG 9.5kg with 50kg Thrust

The Austrian made EOS 100 Paramotor engine.

100cc Belt drive with a clutch, easy pull start engine, competes head to head with the well known Top80 and other engines in this class. Build quality is high, economy is good, power is 50kg + category, the engine feels small and I wouldn’t believe the delivery box even contained an engine. UK price of £1995 with auto decompressor (as shown on the custom-air website)

EOS 100 engine

  • Lightweight & compact construction
    The very light engine is built small, nicely and compact with the use of only highest quality materials. Well manufactured in all details by the use of most modern techniques with a smart constellation of components which are perfectly working together.
  • Optimum operation
    The engine is easy to start up, with a smooth and constant run at idle. The well adjusted carburetor together with the unique HIFLOW-SHOT air box care for an even run in all revolutions. Perfectly balanced crankshaft, fly wheel and shafts care for a low vibration. The fan cooling prevents the engine against overheating and allows long duration runs at full power.
  • Power & thrust
    Considering the small size and very low weight, the moderate compression ratio for a durable and long life span, the small displacement, the engine gives an optimum thrust and astonishing power.
  • Reliable quality
    The well proven engine concept and the use of highest quality materials and components, the best workmanship and accurate engine assembly, all grant for a highest quality product and reliable engine run throughout a long period of operation.

Custom Air Conception Vittorazi Moster Titanium Paramotor under 22kg!!

Vince from Custom-Air Paramotors showing off the latest AirConception Titanium Paramotor. This Vittorazi Moster powered paramotor claims 74kg thrust yet remains a mere 21.6kg all up ready to fly weight.

Vince says its super strong titanium chassis is unmatched in the strength to weight department + the titanium reinforced 3k carbon spars are strong and super light. At 21.6kg its the lightest moster paramotor I have seen, but its not our lightest motor, for that we have another machine with 64kg thrust and it is yet another 2kg less weight.

This minimalistic design is not to everyones taste but the power to weight is sure to raise a few eyebrows.
