Powerfloat 2Bsure Aquatic Flotation System for Ultralight Aircraft!
The Powerfloat 2Bsure vests (two piece flotation system) are available in two sizes the standard for Powered Paragliders and Paragliders .
The pair including Co2 Canisters (2 x 25 gram) and automatic inflation. The best thing about the twin system is they fit any frame or harness and have the security of two flotation units. These are also popular with coastal Tandem pilots as they can be mounted on the spreader bars as an option for PPG or PG pilots.
The Powerfloat 2Bsure XL are much larger in volume are are ideal for hang gliders, powered hangliders, powered parachutes and Powered Paraglider trikes. The pair with the Co2 Canisters (2 x 70 gram) and Automatic inflation and can be fitted almost anywhere on a frame or upright as required.
The set or pair of 2Bsure vests weight 711 gram including the Co2 canisters.
Each half of the 2Bsure system is the same flotation as a standard 150N life vest so the pair gives you twice the flotation and the added security of two cells. The 2Bsure XL size has six times the flotation of a normal life vest in the pair for excessive flotation. These are supplied with the new multiple fit systems they can be attached with the webbing supplied, Velcro or with zip ties through the loops on the back.
The Powerfloat 2Bsure is ideal for schools doing SIV courses over lakes, Acro pilots, coastal pilots and everyday pilots that have any chance of a water landing. The biggest and best flotation system available for pilots.
The recommended installation of a 2Bsure Twin system is on the shoulder straps of the harness to ensure maximize the ability of the vests to keep an unconscious pilot’s head above water. The 2Bsure is our preferred system for PPG.
All Water sensors for should be replaced annually to ensure moisture absorption from the air or wet grass etc does not cause a unexpected inflation.
