Let the Adventure Begin!

 

 
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 and  spin resistant, 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 30-50 feet. 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 off power and flaring the parachute just above the ground. 

The parachute is an 15 cell Ram Air canopy. It is 367 sq. ft. and made of rip stop nylon. The parachute is designed to be stall and spin resistant.  The engine is a Rotax 503 two stroke. It puts out 52hp. and is used with a 3 or 4 blade propeller. The fuel capacity is 7.5 Gallons which can give up to two hours flight time.

Usually  between three-five hours a novice can be flying solo. The aerochute brings the experience of flight to anyone who has ever wanted to fly. When people see the Aerochute fly they can relate to its simplicity and safety and realize that even they could fly this machine. Pilots flying conventional US made powered parachutes are attracted to the simplicity, compactness, manueverability and speed of the Aerochute.

It is used by people for leisure flying, sport enthusiasts, adventurers and by farmers as an aerial motorbike to check properties and help muster stock.

Aerochute Industries is a Melbourne based company which has designed and manufactures the Aerochute Dual.  In May 1992 Aerochute Inds. received full Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) approval to manufacture and sell the aircraft, also to teach people to pilot standard.  Since then it has received approvals in New Zealand, Japan, South Korea and Indonesia and has distributors in these counties.

This may be the first certified powered parachute design in the world of powered parachutes. This will become important as Sport Pilot rules effect.
