Six Chuter On the Road to New Home in Toquerville, Utah

After 18 years in Wiley City and Yakima Washington and now 10 years in East Wenatchee, Washington, Six Chuter Powered Parachutes is on the road to our new home in Toquerville, Utah.

This leaves us with mixed emotions.  We have had a great run in the Pacific Northwest and have managed to produce and distribute more than 2200 powered parachutes around the world.  So it is with some sadness that we move on.  That said, a business has to keep moving forward.  The new home company, Out West Light Sport Aviation is owned and operated by Husband-Wife Team Stacy and Anita Eaton.  They purchased Outlaw Chutes LLC, home of the Predator powered parachute earlier this year.  And then added Six Chuter to the new company.  This combines two very good companies and can now offer even more models and variety of ways to build, certify and fly for fun. And the new location in Southern Utah has a deep Powered Parachute history including location of the Powered Parachute World Championships in early 2000’s. The Utah Powered Parachute ‘flock’ is quickly growing to be one of the most active in the nation.

The current owners of Six Chuter International LLC will remain actively involved in working with Out West LSA LLC for the foreseeable future.  To contact Out West LSA (and Six Chuter) please now start with our toll free number

Call Toll Free 888 438-1555

Note that we are doing our best to make this transition as ‘seamless’ as possible.  There will be some delays in response to parts orders for a couple of weeks while we get set up, but are striving to fulfill orders as quickly as possible. We also have units in progress and have planned the work in a way to help avoid any delays in deliveries.

Tribute to Steve Rambo

Six Chuter Sad to Announce Passing of Steve Rambo

 

‘We just received word this morning of the passing of Steve Rambo. This picture was taken at one of our Memorial weekend fly-ins where Steve was always a larger than life presence flying around the field on his four wheeler or giving rides in his aircraft. We fondly called him Rambo but it could just as well have been Mcgyver. It didn’t seem to matter what it was that anyone needed be it a tool or a part, Rambo would rush off and sort through his cubby holes on his motorhome or trailer and magically come up with the needed item. Steve was a big man with a big heart, a teddy bear if you will. He was the longest tenured dealer in Six Chuter history, a good guy and a better friend. God speed Stevie. You will be missed but not forgotten. Rest in peace.’

Dan Bailey, Founder, Six Chuter Inc. Powered Parachutes

 

Steve Rambo, aka, ‘Rambo’ holds the distinction of being the longest serving Six Chuter dealer.  He joined Dan Bailey’s network of worldwide dealers in 1997 and continued to serve in various roles with Six Chuter International until 2018. Six Chuter was like his second family.

He was an FAA certified Private Pilot, but transitioned to powered parachutes in the late 1990’s.  He loved his Six Chuter Spirit and was known as one of the most competent ppc pilots anywhere. He ‘performed’ for many years at the Arlington Washington airshow.

More than just a pilot and a dealer though, as Dan Bailey pointed out he was really known for how hard he worked to make sure everyone else could fly.  From putting up the tent, and later taking it down, to fixing anything that broke, he was always there for everyone.

Steve was bigger than life.  He always had the best stories and had a gift to spin a yearn to keep everyone laughing.

Rambo loved his family, loved his friends, loved flying and loved and lived life to its fullest extent.

He was part of the cook crew at all our events and was revered for his fresh, fried Razor Clams.

We will all miss him a lot, and as Dan Bailey mentioned above, will never be forgotten.

Doug Maas, Six Chuter International Powered Parachutes.

We will keep posts, as appropriate regarding services.
