ANN Consumer Alert: Parascender Technologies Still Bad Bet

They're Still Doing It...

We can scarcely believe that this problem has been going on this long, but one of the most disgraceful situations in the powered parachuting community is still underway. Parascender Technologies, most recently a Kissimmee (FL)-based enterprise, has well, a decade-long history of broken promises, alleged fraud, undelivered merchandise, abysmal customer service and other ills. Unfortunately, despite a number of lawsuits, criminal complaints, and a great many civil complaints to better business bureaus and State's Attorneys General, this company is STILL disappointing customers and further blackening the eye of the PPC community.

Run by convicted felon, RB Brady and his wife Teri, this company first started doing business in the State of Washington under the name Powercraft (among others) and after a bankruptcy and dozens of complaints, moved to Florida, leaving a great many unsatisfied customers in its wake all over the world (as far as Turkey, so far).

One dissatisfied customer notes that, "There are over 60 pages of excuses and correspondence in the file at the Attorney General's office in Orlando/Ocala Florida and I have a host of e-mail address[es] from lots of disgruntled, ripped off customers. Please be careful, that your address doesn't get added to the list. Notice when you did a [web] search that there is no expansive list of Parascender dealers, unlike the list you get back when searching Buckeye, Blue Heron, Destiny, Six-Chuter, Powrachute, etc. Wonder why????"

History may be repeating itself repeating itself...

Over the years, we have received the better part of 100 complaints about this company, its products or RB Brady.

The powered parachuting community is filled with a number of manufacturers who offer far better service and satisfaction than Parascender. As a matter of fact, we know of no one, in our opinion, who has done worse.

ANN strongly recommends that Parascender Technologies be avoided (like a cliche, or like the plague…) as a candidate for flight training, PPC dealership agreements, powered parachute equipment, or PPC airframe purchases. We simply have too extensive and persuasive a record of this company's false statements, frauds and other non-performance to remotely believe that there is anything about them that can be recommended.

If you have any questions about this or any other PPC issue, feel free to contact ANN via publisher@aero-news.net.
