The first tour runs December 7th – 14th.

This includes ferrying of your equipment from Southern California, lodging, guiding, in-and-around travel, one catered meal per day, extra-curricular activities through the week (fishing, whale-watching), an unforgettable experience, and a $10 gift card to In-n-Out burger.

For members that would prefer to rent a paramotor vs. ship theirs to SoCal, contact us to make arrangements and check additional expense.

Niviuk Unveils The Official Kougar 2 Video

Check out the latest video from Niviuk showcasing their brand new Kougar 2 paramotor reflex wing. It’s awesome to see the passion that went into this video. Makes you want to go flying doesn’t it?

The Kougar 2 is Niviuks Intermediate/ Advanced paramotor wing offering a wide speed range, full reflex and the all new RAM profile. RAM creates a very stable paramotor wing that is highly efficient.

Time To Be A Tease! Say Hello to the SCOUT Enduro Paramotor

Psssst! This is the new paramotor cage system from SCOUT Paramotors.

We’d like to introduce you to the stronger, more durable frame system capable of running a variety of different engines with both left turning and right turning props. This new design features a stainless steel cage and skid system that will be able to take a beating and fly another day.

The SCOUT Enduro is the beginner pilot setup we’ve all been waiting for. It’s definitely not just for beginners though, this unit will handle nearly just as well in the sky as the Carbon model but with the added durability on the ground. SCOUT team pilot Javier Lopez is currently flying the Enduro at the World Slalom championships and is doing quite well. He’s running a Polini Thor 250 out back for insane amounts of power.

We will have more details and published numbers on the SCOUT Enduro in the coming weeks. Until then, we’ll be leaking more photos of the unit so stay tuned for more!

Parajet Paramotors On BBC TV

Parajet Paramotors recently got some much appreciated love from BBC at the Farnborough Air Show in the UK. The Interview with Parajet Paramotors showcased the Parajet Zenith and the new Parajet SkyCar. They also went over some potential uses and the one we all love so much called “fun.”

Our good buddy Othar Lawrence of Redbull can be seen cruising low and fast, check it out!

Paramotor VS Ducati Hypermotard “Duc Duc Goose” Short Film

The latest video from Fly Halo East brought to you by Jeff and his local adrenaline seeking friends.    Jeff decided to shoot some close ups of his friend pulling some nasty wheelies on his Ducati Hypermotard.    

Check out the clip and enjoy the latest paramotor video to come out of Chesapeake VA.   Only 1 camera was used in the making of this video.


 

Jeff is rocking the SCOUT 185 Carbon paramotor, nice shots!

Niviuk Kougar 2 Action Reel Video

The Niviuk Kougar 2 paramotor wing landed in the USA last week and we’ve been thrilled to say the least.   Unfortunately, weather has not been cooperating with us but we did manage to get in a short 20 minute flight to capture some rather stunning footage.  Thanks to James Allred for filming and editing,  you make us look good buddy!

We hope to get more testing in soon of the Niviuk Kougar 2 and we’ll be doing a detailed review in the near future.   The Niviuk Dobermann is also going to be coming over  the pond soon, we hope to see it in early July so we can begin testing on that as well.   Patience!! 🙂

SCOUT Paramotor Harness Load Tested to 5,058 LBS

SCOUT Paramotors has just passed a pretty significant milestone after completing EN testing on the SCOUT harness.  The load testing surpassed 5,000 pounds of pressure on the harness which is the equivalent to 15g’s!

The SCOUT harness is certified according to European Standard EN 1651 to 5,058.2025 pounds.

What does that even mean?  Pilots can fly the SCOUT with the comfort of knowing they can throw whatever they want at the SCOUT harness in an aerial assault of acro.  The SCOUT harness is up to the task.    A pilot with the in flight weight of 330 pounds (150KG) can pull a whopping 15G’s and maintain certification. The testing was done with the SCOUT swing arms and hinge system in place to ensure the SCOUT under load will handle extreme G forces.   At that amount of G force, they would be long passed out before any structural failures!

Congratulations to the SCOUT team in Slovakia as well as the gifted harness design company that helped make this a reality!
