In 1991 there were six friends who decided they could build the best powered parachute: The name Six Chuter, Inc. was born. During the first summer, three of the original six left the company to find full time “paying” jobs. It was tough and there were many times we considered closing shop. But somehow the remaining three of us survived the winter and made it into 1992. New sales were sporadic at best, but between those and parts sales, the business survived. Then in July 1992 they received an order for three units from a gentleman in Ohio. Those three sales turned things around and they’ve never looked back.

The standard kits are sub-assembled at the Six Chuter factory for economical shipping anywhere in the world. The average builder can assemble these units in 40-60 hours. A sub-assembled kit can purchased and certified as an Experimental Light Sport Aircraft. The SLSA is assembled, tested and certified at the factory before it is sold. Six Chuter will offer the XT ssdc and other models as either SLSA or ELSA kits.
