Dear PAP pilots and distributors,
We have detected an important problem in one of the SAFARI engine components. This is the black ignition Carter that is located between the engine Carter and the gray star. Some units of those pieces made of cast iron have broken where the main carter is screwed.
We have solved this defect with a reinforced Carter and machined in 7075 aluminum which is already available for those who need it or want to change it as a precaution. Changing that Carter is not very easy since you have to remove the flywheel before, so we recommend that this operation to be carried out in a professional workshop.
In the meantime, we remind you that it is very important to carry out a thorough check of all the main parts of the engine and the paramotor before each flight: in case of encountering this particular problem, the paramotor should no longer be used until replacing that part with a new one. .
We are very sorry for the inconvenience that this setback may cause.
Without another particular, we take the opportunity to greet you and wish you happy flights!
