Welcome! Join us in one of the most exhilirating and unique forms of flying - roaming the skies in a powered parachute.
Maine Powerchute Association
Here's the latest!
We have not had much luck with the weather during our scheduled events so far, so we're due to have a great weekend at Fryeburg A/P on the weekend of May 19th - hope to see you there!
MPA Safety Meeting
We had a great turnout at the MPA is sponsored an FAA sanctioned Safety meeting on Saturday, April 29th from 10 to 12 at the Bethel Airport. Subject was Mountain Fying. Remember, these FAA safety meetings count as the oral portion of your biennial flight review!
This global warming thing screwed up our winter flying, as very few lakes were frozen enough to use as airports. Oh, well - spring is here and we're excited about a great fying season coming up!
