Six Chuter Kits “Taking Off”

August 20th, 2013

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:

Hi Doug,

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.

Best regards,

Daniel L. McGregor

ELSA Kit Customer Update

June 22nd, 2013

A very nice note from Daniel McGregor who is currently assembling one of our Legend XLss “ELSA” (Experimental Light Sport Aircraft) kits. We remain one of the few manufacturers that offers our aircraft fully assembled and FAA certified, or as a factory Experimental Light Sport kit and now as a fully owner assembled Amateur Light Sport Kit (ABLSA)

Hi Doug. Just a note to let you know I received your email. Building the new Legend is incredible! The documentation and guidance is brilliant! You’ve made some great progress since S/N 3002! I can’t believe how comprehensive and professional the instructions are – great job.

Bottom line is I’m very pleased with the new PPC kit. Thank you, but I’m sure you’ve heard this before. If you don’t mind, I’ll send some pictures. Thanks so much!

Six Chuter Announces New Amateur Built Model

March 25th, 2013

Six Chuter International has announced release of their new SkyeRyder II AB two seat powered parachute that is available now as an Amateur Built kit and eligible for FAA certification as an ABLSA (Amateur Built Light Sport Aircraft)

The SkyeRyder II AB is not so much a new model in our line as it is a new legal way to build and certify with the FAA.  Six Chuter has been manufacturing our aircraft in “kit form” since our beginning in 1991. The Sport Pilot rules complicates the manufacturing of kits and most manufacturers, including Six Chuter International LLC focused first on development of a fully factory assembled Special Light Sport certified aircraft, which in turn authorizes us to produce an Experimental Light Sport kit that can be up to 100% completed by the manufacturer.  Our Elsa kits utilize all of the components (including engines, canopies and instruments) that our Special Light Sport unit offers.

SkyeRyder II AB Airframe Kit Parts

Six Chuter has coordinated with the FAA now to offer a true “Amateur Built Light Sport” kit.  This is a new option for legal certification of powered parachutes. This kit will require at least 51% of the fabrication and final assembly to be done by the builder/owner.  The model designation is the SkyeRyder II AB.  This name of course goes back to our very beginning.  The SkyeRyder was the name of the very first Six Chuter that was entirely kit built by the buyer. The SkyeRyder is a copy of our Legend and the real difference is the degree of fabrication and completion necessary by the builder and the FAA certification process.

Six Chuter is uniquely qualified to develop this kit due to our long history of offering our aircraft in this form.  The owner/builder will be provided with detailed and complete manuals as well as all of the forms and applications required to certify their aircraft as “ABLSA”.  The owner builder will also be able to apply for an FAA Repairman Certificate that allows them to do their own annual inspections. The owner/builder will also be free to use their own engines, canopies and other components to complete their “Experimental Amateur Built”. The full rolling airframe kit will start at $6,275. Six Chuter will also offer several other component kits including, engine, canopy, instruments, accessories and other options.
