Sky Series 290

Powered Parachute wing

~~~

The latest version of the popular SkyBolt 290 elliptical PPC wing!

~~~

What a sweet deal on a GORGEOUS, CLEAN, CRISPY, BRAND-NEW Elliptical Wing for your Powered Parachute (PPC) rig!

Original price: $3,000.00!)

~~~

High Energy Sports Sky Series 290

the newest version of the famous

High Energy Sports Skybolt 290 parachute

for PPC use

~~~

~~ AMERICAN engineered by Quantum Parachutes LLC in Orange, California...AMERICAN built by High Energy Sports Inc. in Anaheim, California ~~

 

~~~

The SKY SERIES 290 is a popular, tried-and-true recreational PPC wing/chute that rivals many of the latest elliptical wings/chutes that today retail for $2,500.00-$3,500.00.

~~~

This beautiful Sky Series 290 parachute came into my possession recently. The previous owner bought it brand new, intending to install it on his Powrachute Sky Rascal PPC unit. But he retired from flying PPCs before he ever even took it out of the factory wrapper. It’s been in climate-controlled storage ever since.

It’s brand new, never been used…we took it out of the original plastic wrapper only to take photographs of it.

I've given it a careful inspection, and the only flaw I can find on it…and it is miniscule…is a tiny bit of gray dust/discoloration from where the previous owner rested the bundled-up wing on the ground to take some photos of it. There is also a tiny bit of discoloration on the undersurface from where, apparently, some of the color in the lines rubbed off on the white cloth. If this wing was a darker color, you’d never see these teensy-weensy blemishes. Overall, it is CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN, and I give it a 9.9 on a scale of 1 to 10.

The crisp yellow, white, and green canopy looks as flawless as can be. The OEM lines still glow with bright fluorescent colors in the sunlight, and these lines are clean, undamaged, unkinked and un-faded. The risers are also brand-new, and have never been installed. The line socks are brand new too. The carrying case/bag is almost perfectly clean. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give this parachute a 9.9 or more.

This Sky Series 290 parachute is ideally suited to be used with a PPC with a gross payload weight of 350 to 750 lbs.

Parachute/wing comes as you see it here, with canopy, lines, risers and carrying case only.

It is ready to install on a Sky Rascal PPC unit, and can be installed on many other PPC units too. May require a different set of risers to be used on other PPC units.

No, you don’t get a complete $15,000.00 PPC unit for this price…the item for sale here is the parachute, lines, and risers only!!!

Note: Hang Gliding, Paragliding, Powered Parachutes, etc. are forms of aviation which are considered hazardous sports with inherent risks. You must have proper instruction from a qualified instructor before undertaking any aspect of Hang Gliding, Paragliding, or PPC flight. Fly cautiously, because you are safer if you don’t get into an emergency than you are if you need your reserve parachute to get out of one. No reserve parachute is 100% reliable, and no one should intentionally ride one down except to escape from an actual emergency. Seller accepts no responsibility or liability for the purchase and or subsequent use (or misuse) of this item, or any subsequent consequences, including property damage, injury or death. No warranties are implied or extended. By bidding on this auction you are agreeing with the above statement and hold the seller harmless.  If you need to find an instructor in your area, feel free to ask seller about instruction in your area.
