Last week we had the Aerochute powered parachutes on display at the Avalon Airshow. During the trade days we had an Aerochute on the stand with Swinburne University, with thanks to Clint and Janine. We are working with the students to convert an Aerochute into an electric powered parachute with a new designed frame. There are some pictures attached of the design concept to be used. We had a lot of interest in the electric version and people offering us help on propulsion and battery systems.
Over the public days we had an outside stand opposite the food stands which supplied a constant flow of people passing by to talk to us about flying. A common theme we found was that everyone enjoyed watching the jets fly past but only dreamed of being a pilot in one. When they saw the Aerochute and pictures of other pilots using it on their trips around Australia they said “Even I could do this!”. So we had a great show and now have plenty of people booked in for flights to see if this can make their dream of flying come true. We fly every weekend the weather is good so give us a call and “let the Adventure Begin…!”
