Six Chuter P3 Lite Single Seat Ultralight Released for Production

June 2nd, 2014

Six Chuter International LLC announces the release for production of their all new P3 Lite single seat powered parachute.

New P3 Lite. Light. Strong. Easy to Fly.

The P3 Lite has been in the design, research and development phase for nearly two years. It is a true powered parachute (not steering with hands like a trike buggy), and meets the strict requirements of FAA rule 103 for ultralights. Thus there are no licensing requirements and no medical certificate required. And in fact there is no age limit and technically no training requirements to fly. Six Chuter wants all their new pilots trained properly so are uniquely offering a $500 coupon for training with each aircraft.

The company objectives included building a powered parachute designed for easy manufacturing, easy building, safe and easy flying all for a retail price under $10,000!
