WANT TO EXPERIENCE FLYING?

Come fly with us like a bird

Powered Parachute Joyride

Flying in an aeroplane is a very common thing in today's world. It is really amazing how a metal tube designed aerodynamically just flies in the air with so many people. However, do you get a tingling feeling in your stomach when you fly this way now ? At least we don't because the feeling and the sensation that you get in adventure flying is unparalled. Flying like a bird has been man's greatest dream. When you fly in a Hummerchute, you are sitting in an aircraft which is completely open giving you an almost 360 degrees bird's eye view of the space above and the world below. You feel the wind in your face, the birds flying in front of you and the beauty of nature from above. The experience is one that get imprinted in your mind for a lifetime. This kind of aviation is also called pocket aviation as it is relatively cheap to own, easy to transport and easy to fly.

How it's done?

The Hummerchute is an aircraft which has a powerful engine mounted on a 3 wheeled carriage. It is a propeller driven aircraft. It has a fixed seat which carries the pilot and the passenger sitting side-by-side. The aircraft flies with the help of an overhead ram air parachute which is attached to the Hummerchute.

Safety Features

Seat straps which secure you to the seat. Under no circumstances you will unstrap yourself mid-flight. The Aerochute ram-air parachute is a very safe and collapse resistent wing because of its rectangular design and has an overall load carrying capacity of upto 360 kgs. Each parachord of the parachute has the ability to bear loads of upto 950kgs. The engine is among the best in the aviation industry. From a height a landing can even be done with the engine switched off.
