National Parachute

National Parachute

National Parachute Industries started in 1976 selling sport parachute gear. In 1980 they began development of emergency parachutes, beginning with the Back model. In 1985 a full line of Back, Seat and Chair parachute models were completed. Each parachute is fully steerable with a choice of three canopy sizes based on pilot weight.

National Parachutes were developed with the pilot in mind. Their high quality parachutes do not have unnecessary hardware or pack-stiffening plates to maintain their shape. Efficient engineering goes into all models right from the start. National Parachutes feel and work great and will continue to for years!

National set out to design and successfully market a parachute to meet customer demands & requirements in the following areas:
• Small volume
• Light weight
• Comfortable
• Competitive Price
• Meet TSO Requirements

With the above parameters in mind, they developed the National line of emergency parachutes. In 30+ years of manufacturing they produced over 15,500 emergency parachutes, earning numerous letters of appreciation for saved lives.

Back Parachute

National's Back Pack was developed with the pilot in mind and is their most popular model. The teardrop shape provides flexibility and maximum comfort even in the tightest cockpits. The shape and size make this model the most all–around universal parachute

Seat Parachute

National's Seat Pack is especially desirable when the cockpit has more vertical space than horizontal. For added comfort, the seat pad has one inch of "Astronaut Foam" above the parachute container (user accessible/adjustable via Velcro closure).

Flat Parachute

National's previous “Chair Parachute” is replaced by the FLAT Parachute (with the addition of a detachable seat pad ("GRF" pad). This configuration creates the overall slimmest, most comfortable profile from side to side / top to bottom.
