Suspension

The suspension system of the Powrachute is unique and heavy duty. It is specially designed to handle the toughest of landings.  

Chromemoly

The chromemoly frame is the base structure for all Powrachutes with the tubing extending all the way from front to rear.  Instead of stopping at the pylon, the chromemoly extends all the way to the fanguard.  By using this application with the chromemoly we have added more rigidity to the entire machines structure.

Instrumentation

The instrumentation on a Pegasus is sleek and easy to read with a built in Engine Information System.  It also has power point for plugging in GPS, cell phones, etc.

Steering Bars

The steering bars on the Powrachute add a unique feature for the taller and shorter pilot.  The bars are adjustable making the plane easier to fly if you are above or below average height.  They adjust easily by removing two bolts.

Ground Steering

The ground steering doubles as a convenient tow bar for pre-flight and post-flight maneuvering.  This feature was added for safety to keep the pilot from pushing the machine around by the prop. 

Powder Coating

Each machine is done in a long lasting in- house powder coating.  The coating is convection baked which is a more controlled process than the  infra-red process. Standard airframe colors are ready for delivery (see your local dealer).  Most custom orders are available at no extra charge - allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.

Fuselage Bars

The Fuselage Bars are another unique feature on the Powrachute.  On the Pegasus they are an integral part of the design and allow the parachute to be attached well above the center of gravity and the thrust line of the machine, improving stability and performance. They also add to the structural strength of the machine. Finally, in addition to the other obvious functions they serve,  the fuselage bars serve to ease the entry and exit for the pilot and student and a great place to install assecories!

Webbing Risers

The PC2000 utilizes webbing risers for added strength and shock absorption during flight.  They were chosen over cables for this reason. 

Materials

The airframe on the PC2000 is constructed out of  chromemoly  and 6061-T6 aviation grade aluminum.

All connectors are aluminum saddles for added strength.  NO plastic saddles are used.

Propeller

Three blade composite propeller from top of the line industry manufacturer.
