BlackHawk Talon 175 Paramotor

The BlackHawk Talon 175 made it’s debut in 2011 at the BlackHawk Salton Sea Fly In. The 175 Paramotor features a beautiful, fully-CNC’d motor, made from extremely strong billet aluminum. Boasting a whopping 179 lbs of thrust, the BlackHawk Talon 175 Paramotor annihilated the competition at the Salton “Thrust War Competition.” The Talon 175 placed third overall against multiple manufacturer’s machines tested, in multiple weight classes. Coming in at first place, of course, was our ever-famous BlackHawk Rocket 313! (212 lbs of thrust). For a mid size motor, the BlackHawk Talon has made history for power-to-weight ratios in the industry! The BlackHawk Talon 175 Paramotor was designed exclusively for the sport of Powered Paragliding through the collaboration of BlackHawk Paramotors USA and Sky Bike Aviation. Years of experience, the latest technology, and the highest-quality parts went into producing the coolest-running, and most-powerful mid size engine in the sport!

The BlackHawk Talon 175 Paramotor was designed to suit the needs of many extreme applications. It’s perfect for acro pilots who need superior power and lift for high-altitude or high-elevation flights. This unit is also perfect for tandem application, or larger pilots who need that extra power. The Talon is easy to start, and extremely durable. If you are looking for a professional power-house machine, the BlackHawk Talon 175 Paramotor is an excellent choice!

Let’s go back to the “fully CNC’d feature”… BlackHawk Paramotors USA was the first and only manufacturer to feature a complete line of fully CNC’d Paramotors. The cylinders are the only part of the motor which are not fully CNC’d. Motors that are CNC’d from solid billet aluminum are 6X stronger than “cast motors.” This provides for much tighter and accurate tolerances

Many pilots ask us about weight. The weight of the entire machine, including our Kestrel Cage, the prop, fuel tank, and harness weighs in at only 49.5 lbs! The Talon 175 Paramotor was designed to extend only 10 3/4″ from the the pilot’s back. This type of weight distribution or center of gravity provides for an ultra-light feel which is so important to the most elite pilots.

The BlackHawk Talon 175 come standard with the BlackHawk Kestrel Cage and can easily be upgraded to the Rhino or the most Elite Paramotor in the world, the Team BH Pro series.
