ALL PARACHUTES ARE BUILT TO ORDER to meet your exact requirements – delivery time approx 3 weeks (This can increase during busy periods) Prices will vary due to exchange rates and prices shown below are indicative only. Softie Parachutes have 24ft conical, steerable canopies and 20 year life validity. Speed: TSO C23b (standard category) 220lbs @ 150knots.
Each Softie Emergency Parachute System comes with your choice of Conventional Harness or our exclusive Aerobatic Harness. (which is suitable for many other aircraft such as gliders)
You may also choose from a number of harness and container options to customize your Softie to your individual needs.
This release allows the canopy to be disconnected from the harness. If you fly in areas where high ground winds are common you may want to consider this option. Capewell's will allow you to release the canopy to avoid being dragged across the ground after landing. But please be aware that this option adds considerable weight to the overall parachute.
NOTE: The harness main lift web is non-adjustable when Capewells are installed.
Please specify your harness choice and any options when ordering:
