AEROCHUTE RAM-AIR PARACHUTE

All ram-air parafoils have two layers of fabric — top and bottom — connected by airfoil shaped fabric ribs to form "cells". The cells fill with high pressure air from vents that face forward on the leading edge of the airfoil. The fabric is shaped and the parachute lines trimmed under load such that the ballooning fabric inflates into an airfoil shape. The rectangular parachute designs tend to look like square, inflatable air mattresses with open front ends. They are generally safer to operate, because they are less prone to collapse or dive rapidly with relatively small control inputs and they glide more slowly. They typically have a lower glide ratio. The Aerochute canopy comes with control stop rings on the toggle lines which help in eradicating excess input by the pilot thus leading to almost no stall like situations ever. The toggle line setup is designed for periods of hands free flying also. Following are the specifications of the Aerochute ram-air canopy:

TRAILER (A transportation accessory designed and provided by MASC)

The Hummerchute is an aircraft and we know that assembling and dismantling before and after every flying session to transport these machines is a pain. Most of the aerosports community does not recommend it too. With our transport solutions strategic partner, we have designed this open trailer which we are providing in the package. Loading and unloading the Hummerchute from this trailer is a one man/woman job now. Following are the specifications of the trailer:


STURDY BUILD

The trailer has an iron body and we have used aluminium chequered plate for the flooring. It is designed to be very strong and at the same time lightweight too.


SPEED

The trailer can easily be towed upto speeds of 70 - 80 kmph while loaded with the aircraft.


SECURE TRANSPORTATION

There are belts to secure the aircraft on the trailer. There is a locking mechanism on the front end of the arm to secure it to the hook attached to the car. The car hook is not provided by us in the package however, we can assist in getting it fabricated into your car.
