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 CHAIR™ Model 305
The Model 305 is truly a chair-parachute, covering the back of the body from shoulders to just above the knees. The patented chair-type container conforms to the curve of your back. It is especially popular among sailplanes pilots flying for hours in the supine position, it is literally a "parachute-cushion" beneath the pilot. It is 42" (105 cm) long by 16" (40 cm) wide and varies from 2.5" to less than 1" (6.5 to 2.5 cm) thick, designed specifically for use where space is minimal. The complete system weighs approximately 16.5 lbs (7.5 kg).
