Why Six Chuter?
There has been a proliferation of powered parachute manufacturers over the past few years. Yet none can match our claim that Six Chuter has been in business under original ownership longer than any other. Six Chuter Inc. was founded in 1991 so offers two decades of experience in the industry. The company was created on a foundation of integrity, honesty and an uncompromising value for quality and safety. Dan Bailey, Director, Six Chuter International LLC has never wavered from leading the company with these over-arching values. This is important to you because you can be confident that Six Chuter is in this industry for the long haul. You can depend on us for quality products and great support to your business endeavor.
The Six Chuter product line has evolved from nearly twenty years of experience. We have over 2100 aircraft in the field and most are still flying today! Six Chuter has resisted the temptation to build larger, heavier, more complicated aircraft. The result is that we offer one of the safest and best performing powered parachutes anywhere. The “Legend” product line has been designed to establish models that can be certified under the new FAA Sport Pilot regulations for light sport aircraft. While our aircraft are neither the least expensive, nor the most expensive in the industry, we can prove that they are among the most cost-effective. That means that our customers get more value, safety, performance and service per dollar spent than any they would with any other company. And Six Chuter International LLC is dedicated to the highest level of customer support possible. We have built one of the most extensive dealer-trainer networks in the world. Enjoyment of this sport requires after-sale support to our customers for training, accessories, ongoing service, events and activities. We maintain this support through you, our representative, new Six Chuter Flight Centers, and an extensive set of communications.
What Type of Opportunities Does Six Chuter Offer?
Another advantage of Six Chuter is that we offer a tiered approach to business relationships. This is different from the traditional “dealer” approach in the industry. The typical approach is that you purchase a manufacturer’s aircraft at retail then get “sanctioned” to sell their products in the future with commissions or discounts. The problem with this traditional approach is that being successful in this business, more than many other type of business, requires an incredible array of skills. A successful “dealer” requires business skills, flying proficiency, ability to teach others, sales experience, technical skills to assemble and maintain, along with assets to purchase inventory. It is a rare person who has all of these traits or assets. Six Chuter takes a different approach by offering you opportunities at various levels, and providing you with personal support to succeed at that level. Some options include:
Associate: The Six Chuter associate is required to have specific qualifications or credentials and be willing to support a customer who purchases a Six Chuter. An example of associate might be an FAA Certified Flight Instructor, powered parachute qualified, who agrees to train Six Chuter customers. Another example would be individuals who have earned the FAA Maintenance with repairman rating certificate who agrees to work on customer aircraft. The primary requirement for associate centers on personal qualifications, your business organization and reputation and your willingness to support customers.
Representatives: Other Representatives are required to own and operate a Six Chuter powered parachute, have a legal business entity and be willing to provide sales and services to Six Chuter customers. Representatives make earnings dependent on the type and level of services they offer. There are profits available from training, assembly, maintenance and accessory sales. Most of our business relationships are with associates and representatives who are using this opportunity as a part-time method to enhance income.
Flight Center Manager: In 2005 we began recruitment of Flight Center Managers to organize Six Chuter International LLC Authorized Sport Pilot Training Centers throughout the United States. Flight Center Managers have usually been involved in the sport for several years and have the experience required to offer an array of services, as well as manage associates and representatives in multi-state regions. Flight Center Managers are required to provide places to fly, maintain a standing inventory of new Six Chuters, offer professional training for customers and representatives, and provide ongoing services such as assembly and maintenance. Managers are awarded the highest sales commissions. Representatives and associates purchase our aircraft through Flight Centers located in their region or direct from Six Chuter where no Flight Center exists. Flight Center Managers are an integral part of the Six Chuter management team and are actively involved in planning for the future, organizing events, and working on Sport Pilot Transition.
The powered parachute market is still emerging and for the most part remains largely “undiscovered”. We would not encourage you to quit your day job with hopes of making this a full time career. Yet we have scores associates, representatives, and managers making profits from their involvement.
