Powered paragliding is an amazing but risky sport. We have to pay attention to every detail to keep the risks low.
What does this mean? It means the SCOUT harness and frame is certified according to European Standard EN 1651 (even though it is not compulsory in most countries).
It means you can fly safe. It means we can sleep peacefully.
Instead of just a bolt holding the bar, we designed the smart bar attachment so that the load is spread out on a larger surface area. The bolt on the SCOUT is not stressed at all. It is just there to hold the bar in place.
The Safe Start system is a small computer that monitors the revolutions of the engine. In case of the RPM increasing suddenly right after starting the engine, this device will instantly shut the engine off.
SafeStart comes standard with every SCOUT paramotor.
With The container located under your seat there is nothing hanging around in front of you during launch . Install your reserve parachute permanently, if you need it just grab the handle.
The ergonomically shaped carbon protection shield distributes the impact on a larger surface and prevents damaged frame tubes injuring your spine. Just in case.
SCOUT is fully certified according to EU regulations. We have passed certification in Czech Republic and Austria. In most other countries no certification is needed. Yet if it is, you can be sure your SCOUT will be legally flyable.
