About The Kestrel:

BlackHawk Paramotors has set a new industry standard with the Kestrel line of ultra-lightweight frames. The frame alone weighs in at only 8.5 lbs (3.8 kg), and is extremely durable.  The BlackHawk Kestrels are becoming the most sought-after units on the market, and boast the best overall performance of any setup currently in production. The Kestrel comes in Several models: The Kestrel Standard, Kestrel Pro, and Kestrel Pro Elite. The Kestrel standard features mid hang-points with rigid J-Bars. This creates ultra stability for easy launching and a smooth in-flight ride. The Kestrel Pro features extremely responsive weight shift for superior control and a “near free flight” experience. The Kestrel Pro Elite features Aircraft Grade Aluminum Frame, Carbon Fiber Rods, Carbon Fiber Seat Board, and Titanium Swing Arms! The Kestrel is available with many motor options like: The BlackHawk 90, 125 LITE, Talon 190, and AirMax 220 motors. The Kestrel was created by the BlackHawk Team with years of Paramotor design experience and R&D feedback from our team pilots. Each unit is carefully constructed with the lightest, strongest, and highest-quality materials available. Safety was not sacrificed for performance when designing the Kestrel. This revolutionary Kestrel line of products have been quoted as “the closest feeling to free-flight paragliding you can experience with a motor!”


“I’m a free-flight pilot and a smaller guy.  I never imagined there would be a Paramotor that’s light enough for me to launch and still gives me that “free-flight feeling.”  The BlackHawk Kestrel Pro Elite is simply amazing!”

NEW Paramotor Frame Colors Review:

  • The American Kestrel:

    -A Paramotor Cage worthy of it’s name-

    The American Kestrel is the smallest falcon or raptor in North America.  Well known for it’s lightening-fast speed, lightweight body, and soaring capabilities, the Kestrel was a fitting name for our new high-performance, ultra-light frames.  The American Kestrel is able to live in very diverse conditions, ranging from above the Arctic Circle, to the tropics of Central America.  The American Kestrel is likely the most abundant falcon in North America, and can take down prey much larger than its size.  After BlackHawk designed the NEW Kestrel Paramotor Frame, we announced a contest for customers to come up with a name for this next-generation of Paramotor Frames… After a few weeks and over 100 suggestions, the Kestrel was born!
