Eagle Sport Aviation Arizona

January 25th, 2017

News from Tyler Sepp, Eagle Sport Aviation LLC. Tyler and his business partners are our new Six Chuter Flight Center in the Southwest U.S.

Greetings Valued Customers,

I’m writing you to announce we are in process of making a switch on how the Eagle Sport family operates; beginning Monday, January 23rd, 2017, we will be relocating our airplanes out of hangar on the North side of the Glendale Airport.
While a tough decision to make, we recognize the following benefits to support our business, our instructors, as well as our valued-clients:
• We will bring the rental back to $110/hour for the airplane; no added facility fees. Additionally, we will now be offering discounted bulk-rates;
• We will direct potential customers to affiliated instructors through Eagle Sport marketing, at no added costs. This will include an “About Me” Instructor spotlight for clients to learn about the instructor, their applicable experience, and make an informed decision to fly with that instructor. We are dedicated to help our affiliates build their flight instruction businesses.
• We are partnering with a third-party webhosted technology, “Flight Circle.” This website will provide your clients the ability to reserve your time, make online payments, and most importantly provide the seamless ability for our instructors to manage and view their past and upcoming flight history; again at no added costs to you;
• Aligning with our new hangar affiliate will now afford us the opportunity to permanently hangar our planes and powered parachutes. This will provide us the ability to keep our planes clean and safe from adverse weather conditions. Within the hangar, at your immediate reach, will be servicing materials such as rags, oil, and cleaners to limit your “back-and-forth” trips you previously had to make from the hangar to the tie-down spot;
• Maintenance is co-located with dedicated oversight of the aircraft. This will allow us to commit to a fixed maintenance schedule for both planes as well as having the support to address immediate concerns keeping the airplanes mechanically safe, fueled, and flight-ready;
• We will be returning to the use of 91-Octane automotive gas. This mitigates the added maintenance times related to unnecessarily using 100 Low-Lead, reducing down-time and again increasing the availability of our planes for your instructional use.
What we ask of you in return:
• Be a part of our team and make Eagle Sport, LLC your school of choice. We recognize there are many other Light Sport flight schools for you, however, our dedication to our planes and our instructors is value-add is immeasurable. Partner and trust in Eagle Sport, LLC, united we can build the best Light Sport school this country has ever seen!
• Lend a hand: We have done marketing by providing our aircraft for display at events such as Aviation Day at the State Capital, Car Shows, etc. If we have an event scheduled, help us and boost your client-prospects by getting in on the action! Participate, volunteer, and we certainly want to hear your ideas if there are other events which would be beneficial to participate in.
• Care for our planes, as if they were your own: While I will be personally washing and helping to maintain these aircrafts, I ask the same from you. Help keep them clean, timely report concerns or discrepancies, and provide feedback if we can be doing things more efficiently and effectively. By now, I demonstrated the difference I make when I am home and present. This company is my baby and our instructors (you) are my friends. I want the best for us and I want you to have pride in the birds you fly. Working together to keep up the appearance of the planes will boost our brand recognition and reputation, which will again bring clients to you.
• Lastly, attend our monthly Eagle Sport, LLC hosted instructor meetings. The point of these monthly meetings will be to have an open forum to address concerns, any upcoming changings, as well as swap tips to help promote teamwork and safety.
I believe the best strategy for long-term growth and success is through you. Keeping our instructors happy means our clients are happy; happy clients leads to happy feedback and more referrals. This is our chance to get back to what I started Eagle Sport to do in the first place, to provide a fun and affordable way for the masses to realize their dream of flight.
I want to personally thank you for your patience and understanding while Eagle Sport, LLC makes this transition.

Please contact me to discuss any questions or concerns regarding the transition at your leisure, I am always open to hearing your candid feedback and want to ensure you know you’re a valued partner.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Six Chuter International

December 18th, 2016

A Special Message to Our Six Chuter Friends

2016 has really been another spectacular year for Six Chuter Powered Parachutes and we want to wish all of our staff, family, friends, pilots, business partners and prospective customers a special Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

This article is a quick summary of 2016 and a bit of a forward look to 2017.

 

 

 

THE SIX CHUTER TEAM

Tom Connelly

 

Tom Connelly our Operations Manager continues to do the hard work and lead production and distribution.  This year he trained with Perry Robertson, P3 Sports so that Tom could do more of the full Paragon 912 work at the factory.

Jacky

Jaclynn Osborne (AKA Jacky) joined the Six Chuter team full time and has been a huge asset to the company.  She is able to do full airframe assemblies and also does a great job of organizing shipping and receiving and is becoming more and more involved with sales.

Rolando Santiago continues to do a great job with customer technical support, and sales calls.  And he continues to do maintenance and support on refurbishing preowned units for resale.

Perry Robertson, P3 Sports has been incredible front line support particularly on our SLSA units and 912 units.  His work on aircraft, inspections, our manuals and in teaching staff has been “above and beyond.

Mark Martin is our lead FAA Examiner, CFI, Production Flight tester and all around support in the field. Dan Bailey (founder of Six Chuter Inc.) continues to be our “Maytag Repairman” and always available with advice, support and leadership.

We have made a lot of progress in 2016 in better organizing the entire Six Chuter operation.  We have increased capacity in the hangar, updated and improved all of our manuals, updated our FAA proofs of compliance and automated nearly all of our office functions.  We are indeed in great shape for 2017

2016 Summary

This is a brief flash of key activities and personalities in 2016.  It is by no means everything or everyone who has been involved with us throughout the year, as that would take a book.

The year started by finishing another beautiful Paragon for Yk Mok, our Distributor in South Korea. Ali  Alisheri and his family visited us at the Six Chuter factory. Ali is working with us to establish a Six Chuter partnership in Saudi Arabia.

Nir Meirav our Israel Distributor started the year with a container full of powered parachutes, and ended the year with a second making him our top selling representative for a few years running.

Dan Morgan, our new West Virginia Dealer and Bill Nelson our Eastern Washington Flight Center Manager both ordered up top of the line, loaded, CFI Paragons during the first quarter.  Dan traveled to Washington to train with Mark Martin.  Bill tagged along with Doug Maas to learn the FAA inspection process.

Mark Martin, N.W. Light Sport stepped up to a new Paragon Hdlx, fully loaded. Chaim Binnenbaum ordered a new Paragon with some new extras and Nir Meirav ended the year with a special order Paragon si (special israel) edition.  Each of these units has helped our top of the line model evolve to be one of the best powered parachutes in the world.

Our P3 Lite continues to “take off” with regular sales throughout 2016.  Many of these have been built by customers with surprising speed to complete.  Sean Curry, Wisconsin Aerosports and Larry Kleczka have been particularly helpful in improving design.  Larry is adding some very cools stuff to customize his.

Arlington Airshow 2016 was damp and cold and one of the least flying event years ever.  But that didn’t dampen the fun we had

Larry Howe, Sacramento Powered Parachutes announced his move to Florence Oregon.  Larry has been our “lone wolf” in California and now will be the only active dealer and PPC instructor (that we are aware of), Oregon.  That is great for us in that territory but would have been a loss for California.  Except for the fact, at the same time, Ken Schwartz, Light Sport Aviation has announced his intention to sign on with us as our California Flight Center Manager.  This is all in process and a real win for the West Coast Six Chuter network.

Tom Sabo, Idaho Powered Parachutes is one of our owners who built his own P3 Lite from kit.  We were so impressed with his work and attention to detail that we are in process of partnering with him to complete the first Skyeryder II, along with manuals and documentation so that we can move this ABLSA model to market. The Skyeryder II is the latest design of Dan Bailey, founder of Six Chuter Inc. and is intended for kit builders who want to certify their aircraft under the Amateur Build Light Sport Rules.

Tyler Sepp and Leo Tocchinni opened Eagle Sport Aviation in Arizona, just before they deployed (U.S. Army Pilots) to Kuwait.  They are returning in December and are partnering with Six Chuter to prototype the Paragon with a new four stroke engine.  That engine is the Aeromomentum engine.  It is 100 h.p engine and retails at half the cost of a Rotax so may result in our Paragon being the most cost effective four stroke equipped Powered Parachute in the world.  Tyler and Leo will be building their flight center near Peoria Arizona.

You can see from this glimpse at Six Chuter 2016 that we are well staged for leading the sport of powered parachutes throughout the world.  And we are looking forward to 2017

Daniel Morgan is in the midst of checking out his new Paragon Hdlx 912 ULS 100 H.P. at Arlington Airport.

Dan is our new representative out of West Virginia and training with Mark Martin, N.W. Light Sport Aviation

Dan’s last experience was with a Six Chuter SR7 so this new top of the line Six Chuter is quite a change from his last unit.
