Powerfloat are a new company specialising in emergency flotation devices for paramotorists.
The devices have twice the bouyancy of standard life vests, and are made specifically to suit paramotor frames, hang gliders or trikes.
The baby of Ben Darke, formerly of Kangook, the two-piece units are made in Australia and are shipped worldwide. Included are automatic inflation units and oral inflation tubes. The CO2 canisters needed for the automatic inflation can be bought from boating stores.
Ben says, “The aim here is safety as I have a very low margin in making these but after having a friend nearly drown I wanted to make a vest that was affordable for all as water landing are near fatal affairs and I don’t want to see any of my fellow pilots drown”.
The company welcome new dealers worldwide, so get in touch with ben if you are interested in becoming a dealer.
