Aerochute Industries has been working on electrifying it’s aircraft over the years and has now achieved a successful maiden flight in early 2018. The Aerochute-E model is a single seat aircraft with a payload of up to 90kg. It’s first flight achieved a flight time of 30 mins.

Category:Pilot Stories

Tim has been flying for a few months and flew his new Hummerchute in July for the first time.

Learning to fly an Aerochute has been one of the most exhilarating things I have experienced.
