Bought a used air chair on ebay last week. Rode twice this weekend. When i cut out and in the air there is a humming or whinning noise. Is this normal or is there something wrong with the air chair. Thx Will

It's normal
Some do it some don't. You can tune the sound out, but that will take some time and filing on the wings and/or strut. Even some of the $4000 SkySki LE and LEXs do this.

Do you have the orginal Air Chair or Stealth? The orginal one is powder coated in black. If you have the powder coated one I would not suggest filing on it unless you are ready to strip the entire foil set.

My original airchair makes that sound. I wouldn't worry about it.

Singing foils! Won't really hurt a thing, kind of like out board props when they sing.

Thx for the info. If it won't hurt anything I'll leave it alone. Thx Will
