Six Chuter International is one of the few powered parachute manufacturers still in business, offering the option to “Build from a Kit”. Six Chuter offers full assembly including Special Light Sport certification, but also offers part 103 ultralight kits, Experimental Light Sport kits and now Amateur Builder kits.
Here is a message from one of our Experimental builders, along with a few photos of his project to date:
Thank you for the e-mail. I received the throttle cable yesterday – thank you. Building 3135 is progressing very well. Work still keeps getting in the way! but I guess that’s what pays the bills… Great job on the manuals! They’re excellently written making the instructions understandable and assembly very easy. I’ve made a few notes – I’ll send them all when I’m finished or some now and the rest later. Please let me know what you prefer. The bottom line is, I’ve enjoyed every minute building 3135! Of course I get lots of help from my 3 year old grandson… =)
I’ve attached some pictures, please feel free to use them anyway you wish. The throttle linkage came just in time as I just finished installing the prop drive and mounted the engine. I’ll start the carburetors tomorrow.
Take care and have a great weekend.
