Description

This is a high quality military parachute, tested by experts, sewn by professionals, and deployed thousands of times in countless applications.

Parachute is New Old Stock in that it has never been used though it comes from a demil'd application, specifically the MK-24 Parachute Flare.  The Mk-24 was deployed from an aircraft with a 2 million candlepower flare which burned for about 3 minutes.  Descent rate with the flare burning was about 7.5 feet per second.

Very lightweight nylon, stuffs easily into appropriately sized deployment bag.

For lighter rockets, you can easily utilize the chute by adding a reefing line to the apex of the canopy or reefing ring to the suspension lines.

Weighs approximately 3 pounds shipped.

Here's an alternate use for our 15 foot parachute, a dance costume!
