Manufacturer  Skyrunner Paramotor Laboratory

The Skyrunner Light is a Russian paramotor that was designed and produced by Skyrunner Paramotor Laboratory of Pskov for powered paragliding. Now out of production, when it was available the aircraft was supplied complete and ready-to-fly.


Design and development

The Light was designed to comply with the US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles rules as well as European regulations. It features a paraglider-style wing, single-place accommodation and a single 14.5 hp (11 kW) Radne Raket 120 engine in pusher configuration with a 3.3:1 ratio reduction drive and a 110 cm (43 in) diameter two-bladed wooden propeller. The fuel tank capacity is 8.5 litres (1.9 imp gal; 2.2 US gal).

As is the case with all paramotors, take-off and landing is accomplished by foot. Inflight steering is accomplished via handles that actuate the canopy brakes, creating roll and yaw.
