Wishing all our customers, past, present and future, a very happy new year!

Eurofly have been busy over the winter period, and have come up with a solution if your airfield suffers from heavy waterlogging! We can now offer the adventure Tundra balloon tyre option for both the Snake and Minifox aircraft.

Snake with Tundra balloon tyre option

Weighing 6kg more than the standard tyres (which would take the Snake outside the sub-70 definition in all but the lightest configurations), I’m assured that this option has no noticeable affect on the aircraft performance in flight. They do however, give a very soft pliable ride over rough ground and look very cool!

Minifox with Tundra tyre option

This option is priced at £930+VAT, which includes the revised forks, axles and braking system (nosewheel on the Snake, main wheels on the Minifox).

In other news, you may have seen elsewhere that Nigel Beale of Skydrive is looking to retire in the spring of 2019. Rest assured, I’m confident that there will be on-going UK support of the Cisco engine range, and this is still our recommended engine supplier for all of our aircraft. A second line of support will remain in Italy with the manufacturer Cisco in any case, which is still the default position for almost all other paramotor engines sold in the UK.

Some dates for your shiny new 2019 diary; Airplay will be exhibiting at the Popham Microlight rally again this year on the 4/5th May, and the Paramotor Club (PMC) Fly-In at Cheltenham racecourse on the 12-14th July. I hope to have some more personal time for flying this year, so if you think members of your club would be interested in having a demo day of either the Snake or the Minifox at your airfield please get in touch!
