Future Flight unfurls its fleet of parachutes to send riders soaring through the open sky aboard lightweight two-person flying machines. After a brief preflight inspection and a few minutes of on-the-ground instruction, passengers strap into the powered parachute with a seasoned aviator, who throttles up a rear propeller from the pilot’s seat and sends the three-wheeled craft rumbling down the runway. As the vessel picks up speed, the attached parachute swells with wind and lifts both passengers into the air, sending them soaring above the earth at altitudes of up to 1,000 feet. Riders savor the scent of the breeze as they gaze down at Lake Lavon’s shoreline, replete with forest groves, rustic farmland, and crop circles shaped like Rod Serling. Hands wriggle free to snap pictures, wave at figures down below, or grip the controls for a few minutes of hands-on aviation supervised by the pilot. After one hour of close-knit cloud companionship, pilots glide their windswept sail back down to earth, leaving passengers full of high-altitude memories, much like commuters who carpool with Peter Pan.

For nearly 30 years, Future Flight has unfurled its fleet of parachutes to send riders soaring through the open sky aboard lightweight two-person flying machines. Sky captains brief each patron during a preflight inspection and provide a few minutes of on-the-ground instruction on flying powered parachutes to ensure a safe and fun trip. The seasoned aviators then throttle up a rear propeller from the pilot's seat and rumble down the runway until the attached parachute swells with wind and lifts the craft into the air, sending pairs soaring above the Lake Lavon shoreline at altitudes of up to 1,000 feet. For patrons interested in amateur migration, Future Flight also runs training lessons for solo flying in sport-pilot and Far Part 103 Ultralight craft, and sells new and used vehicles and accessories.
