28 Foot Parachute

Parachutes available for purchase in our new webstore

All links take you to our new site

Flat 28 foot Diameter Chute still used today by many military paratroopers and in some ejection seat systems.  While the parachute is still airworthy it has not been inspected by a certified rigger and is not rated for manned flight.   Chute is in good shape, intact with all suspension lines and riser attachments. 

Chute weighs 11 pounds.  I've stuffed them into 5.5" diameter by 48" long deployment bags for sounding rocket projects so I know that's possible, a struggle, but possible.
