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.

Great Time to Consider Building Your Own Powered Parachute

 

Skyeryder II Amateur Built Powered Parachute Kit

 

 

 

As the regular light sport season starts to wind down in most areas of the U.S., now is the best time to consider building your own powered parachute from a kit by Six Chuter.  If you get started soon you can build your aircraft in phases as time and resources allow.  And the winter season provides you plenty of time to build a complete aircraft and have it flying by next Spring when the sport flying starts in earnest again.

Building your own from a kit is satisfying and can save you a lot of money.  Download our new Kit Catalogue using the link below.  This catalogue will help you to learn more about building from kit form.
