FL Goodwin was an American aircraft manufacturer that was based in Phoenix, Arizona. The company specialized in the design and manufacturer of powered parachutes.[1]

The company introduced its first model, the Goodwin Tri-Moto in 1997, a unique design of powered parachute carriage that can be folded up to stow on top of a recreational vehicle, in a small pick-up truck or even in a small boat. The design goal was to eliminate the need for a trailer for ground transportation and to simplify storage requirements.[1]

The following year the company introduced the Goodwin Buckshot, a more conventional powered parachute design.[1]
