Each ParaCushion system system features the patented PopTop type container with the externally mounted pilot chute which provides a flat profile while worn & gives a quick and positive send off when released. The canopy risers are neatly hidden in built-in channels contoured into the container. Each container is padded with a luxurious half inch (1cm) layer of Confor™ foam, covered with rich silver grey velour fabric.
The harness utilizes a light weight fixed-dimension main lift web with individual leg strap design for ease of walking & maximum cockpit movement while saving weight & space. Fully adjustable. Deployment is ripcord actuated with the handle located at the front left side of the harness. Each system is assembled with the popular 26 foot diameter Mid-Lite canopy freshly packed by an FAA licensed parachute rigger. Every system is delivered in a matching carrying bag with the complete service manual, ready for flight.
PARA-CUSHION BACK™ Model 303
The Model 303 parachute assembly is the most popular model and is used by warbird, sailplane and aerobatic pilots. The back-mounted container conforms to the curve of your shoulders, and is only 24" (60 cm) tall by 16" (40 cm) wide and less than 3" (7 cm) thick. The Model 303 weighs approximately 15 lbs. (6.5 kg.). It is recommended when head space is at a minimum, such as Christen Eagle & Grob.
