Hello, My name is Steve, and I would like to introduce you to the world of flying a powered parachute. Have you ever wondered what it feels like to fly as a bird with nothing around you but open space? To be able to look down and see things from a whole different perspective? Now is your chance to experience exactly that.
Let me give you a little background on myself:
I have been involved in aviation for Thirty Five years. The first twenty-years were spent flying fixed wing, single engine, land aircraft. Basically they were two and four seat model Cessnas and Pipers. I was introduced to a powered parachute in 1995. I haven't flown a Cessna or Piper since. I can fly into and out of more places than I ever could in a general aviation aircraft. Being in an open frame aircraft gives me more of a feeling of flight than any other type of aircraft I have ever flown. Shortly after my first solo flight, I went to a Basic Flight Instructor school offered by Six Chuter Inc. (the manufacturer of Six Chuter Aerochutes). Six Chuter Home Page
In 1996 I started my business as Aerochutes SW. As a factory authorized dealer of Six Chuter Aerochutes, I currently offer Part 103 solo flight instruction and of course sales of our current and consignment models of aerochutes and accessories. I am very excited about being part of the rapidly growing sport of recreational flight. Enough about me, let's get to the good stuff.
Ultralight and Light Sport Aircraft are one of the best ways to enjoy flight. There are currently nine types of wings available to the ultralight industry: (Powered Fixed Wing, Powered Para Wing, Powered Weight Shift, Powered Para Glider) just to name a few. Powered Parachutes are the safest type of wing available. The main reason for this, is that the wing maintains the airspeed (26 to 30 mph) by itself. The wing is stall resistant by design. With that built-in, all the pilot has to do is maintain the direction of flight and not get too excited by the overwhelming RUSH!
Controlling the direction of flight is easy. There are two steering tubes ( one on the right and one on the left ) and the throttle control. Steering the Aerochute is as easy as stepping on the right tube to go right, left tube to go left, increase engine rpm to go climb up, and engine rpm down to descend. There is a center stick that is used for ground control steering.
With all of that in mind, let's go on to a takeoff.
