PPG Smoke Float System is an industry first cost-effective alternative float for paramotor, paragliding, SIV and hang gliding pilots who fly over water. Utilizing genuine abrasion resistant Cordura® fabric with a 4 point Velcro® mounting system - it installs in minutes and can add up to 300N of buoyancy in the advent of a water landing. Reusable design allows for easy repacking and recharging after a freshwater or saltwater incident.

How It Works:

Designed for a range of possible flight applications across paramotor, paragliding and hang gliding its easily adaptable to a variety of installation scenarios. During a water landing, a “bobbin” dissolves releasing a puncture needle into the CO2 cartridge, inflating the bladder and creating buoyancy.

Floatation is created by two individual (1x left, 1x right) units capable of a combined inflation capacity up to 300N of displacement. More than twice the size of an adult life jacket. Alternatively, each individual unit can be manually inflated in two ways. An oral inflation tube on each unit (left and right) and a manual inflation pull-string.

Mounting:

Installation scenarios vary by application. The Float System is suitable for use on most paramotor frames and includes 8 attachment points for various configurations. Its design is universal enough to adapt to various diameter frame designs or harness shoulder straps. Left and right units open in their respective direction. Mounting must be clear of obstruction, easily accessible in an emergency and the bladder must be puncture free.

  • Left and right of your frame
  • Left and right harness shoulder straps

Recharging:

A recharge kit is not offered for purchase as it is an air transport safety issue. Unscrew the bobbin end cap and CO2cartridge and dispose of the used CO2 cartridge, bobbins and release clips. Unscrew the valve nut, compress the bladder and remove all CO2 inside. Screw in the valve nut. Install the replacement clip, screw in the CO2 cartridge and insert the replacement bobbins - screw in the bobbin end cap.
