Kansas-based Powrachute has become one of the country’s largest powered producers because they keep innovating. Their latest creation is a full enclosure for their Eclectic Star model. Before that they wowed visitors to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh when they showed a powered parachute propelled by a T-58 jet engine. Talk about a crowd pleaser; no one missed hearing it. In fact, company president Eddie Johnson (no relations to yours truly) said it flies just like any powered parachute, “only louder.” No exaggeration in that comment.
