The PSE-1 was designed by Dan Thompson and was only sold to the military.

Scott Kelly (ParaPlane Corporation 1983-1994) designed the PSE-2 for ParaPlane Cooperation and put it into production.

PSE-SF was the Special Forces version of the PSE-2 and 12 were delivered for Operation Desert Storm.

PSE-WD was a highly modified version of the PSE-2 that was made exclusively for Disney World.

The PSE-2 (named Osprey) was advertised circa 1998 as manufactured in the USA and supplied as a completely assembled trike style powered parachute. The rectangular ram air parachute has a zero porosity silicon coating. Electric start was included, and powder coating optional.
