Air Sylphe was a French aircraft manufacturer based in Villereau, Nord. The company specialized in the design and manufacture of powered parachutes in the form of ready-to-fly aircraft for the US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles and the European Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight categories.[1]

The company seems to have gone out of business in the end of 2007.[2]

The company built a line of single and two-seat powered parachutes, all using industrial ducted fans for propellers. Their designs included the single seat Air Sylphe 447 and the two-seat Air Sylphe Bi 582, which was noted as being produced in a special version for wheelchair aviators.[1]
