The Goodwin Buckshot is an American powered parachute that was designed and produced by FL Goodwin of Phoenix, Arizona and introduced in 1998.

Designed as a US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles two seat trainer, it features a parachute-style high-wing, two seats in side-by-side configuration, tricycle landing gear and a single engine in pusher configuration. The standard engines supplied were the 45 hp (34 kW) 2si 460F-45 and the 45 hp (34 kW) Zenoah G-50 engine, although any light, two-cylinder, two-stroke engine can be used.

The aircraft is built from bolted anodized aluminium tubing to save weight. In flight steering is accomplished via foot pedals that actuate the canopy brakes, creating roll and yaw. On the ground the aircraft has tiller-controlled nosewheel steering. The main landing gear does not incorporate suspension and the aircraft relies on large tundra tires to provide this.
The aircraft was distributed by Paraborne Aviation of Kissimmee, Florida. The Buckshot is out of production.
The rectangular canopy is made from double ripstop, mylar and kevlar. The trike design utilises shroud lines and risers.
