Aviation Accident Summary CEN21LA387

Harrison, MI, USA

Aircraft #1


Six Chuter Skye Ryder


The uncertificated pilot reported to local police that while he maneuvered the 2-seat powered parachute about 200 ft above ground level, a descent began because “he couldn’t get lift out of it”. The powered parachute subsequently impacted terrain. The vehicle’s fuselage sustained substantial damage. A Federal Aviation Administration inspector reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the powered parachute that would have precluded normal operation. The pilot did not respond to NTSB requests for further information concerning the accident.

Probable Cause and Findings

The pilot’s loss of control while maneuvering at low altitude, which resulted in impact with terrain.
