Newest Flight Center in Six Chuter Network

Six Chuter has awarded Flight Center status to Eagle Sport LLC, operating out of Pleasant Valley Airport in Peoria Arizona.

Tyler Sepp is President of Eagle Sport LLC and his business partner Leo Tocchini is Vice President.  The team recently purchased the Six Chuter Legend Special Light Sport powered parachute previously owned by Randy Long, Arizona Powered Parachutes.  Randy has decided to devote his full time attention to his commercial Hot Air Balloon Business.  Eagle Sport is inheriting Randy’s territory including Arizona and New Mexico.

Tyler and his business team, though relatively new to powered parachutes have extensive experience in aviation.  Tyler is a UH 60 Helicopter pilot, as well as ATP, Commercial, Glider and Airplane, as well as an experienced flight instructor. His team likewise has extensive aviation and business credentials.

Six Chuter Turning 25 Years Old!

Six Chuter News, Winter 2014-2015

The latest news bulletin from Six Chuter International is available for download in either .pdf format or with live links in MS Word Format. Six Chuter Powered Parachutes will be entering its’ 25th Year in business in early 2015. While we could wait for that moment (April 2015), we decided to focus the winter news bulletin on this achievement. Once our flying season hits in earnest there always seems little time for our communications so using our winter months to distribute is an opportunity we didn’t want to pass up.

Dan Bailey and the Original Six owners of Six Chuter Inc. with the first Skyeryder

In this issue Dan Bailey, Founder and President of Six Chuter Inc. and Doug Maas, President of Six Chuter International LLC share their thoughts on the significance of 25 years of successful business in the Powered Parachute industry.

Dan and Doug both have thoughts on what appears to be a resurgence of interest in flying under the FAA Ulralight rules instead of Sport Pilot. With the recent release of the Six Chuter P3 Lite we spend some time in this issue reviewing the Ultralight rule and its benefits to current or aspiring pilots. And we provide more information on the P3 Lite.

The name “Six Chuter International” was a purposeful choice of the new company. It was meant to bring attention to the fact that Six Chuter powered parachutes are flying in dozens of countries around the world. There has been a steady expansion of U.S. and International representatives during the past two years and therefore we spend space in this issue introducing you to many new faces.

The winter issue also has links and information on how to stay connected to our expanding network.
