The Aerochute

The Aerochute Dual is a simple and safe way to fly.

The Aerochute Dual is a two seater powered parachute designed specifically with safety and ease of operation in mind.  It is designed to be virtually stall or spin resistant and in the case of an engine failure it simply lands safely as a parachute would.

The Aerochute takes off from the ground with the parachute behind you.  Once the engine is started the propeller blows the canopy up and the Aerochute takes off within 10 - 15m.  Climbing and descending is controlled by using power through a foot throttle.  Steering toggles (similar to parachutists) are used to turn left and right.  Landing is achieved by backing the power off and flaring the parachute just above the ground.

The parachute is an 15 cell Ram Air canopy.  It is 370 sq. ft. and made of a rip stop nylon.  The parachute is designed to be virtually stall or spin resistant.  The engine is a Rotax 503 two stroke.  It puts out 52hp. and is used with a 3 blade propeller.  The fuel capacity is 30L which can give up to two hours flight time.
