Alf apparently they are nearly 10k now
Have your choice but don't mandate them. They don't cover every dangerous situation and create a few of their own. Nev
Definitely it should be a choice
Still cheap if it saves you just once
As Nev says don't mandate them as it should be a choice
I suppose if you have a chute collapse at 100 ft with those elliptical canopies they fly with,you would have to be a quick
wild west gunslinging cowboy and be really quick on that trigger.
100 feet, good luck with that. Im picturing a While E Coyote cartoon with canopy floating down over him as lies burried in the canyon floor
Sorta like this???
About as bad as it gets. Nev
No, no they don't.
I have no idea what this "anti-chute" thing is with a number of 'traditional' flyers, there's been plenty of cases of fatal accidents in well maintained planes, flown by very experienced pilots, from heights that a chute would have made most of them a "walk away" result.
Have you guys investigated car drag racing chutes?
Apparently what I heard with that one was the chute was installed as per it should have been on the aircraft but the activation handle was installed on the control bar and when the pilot pushed out to takeoff the chute activated due to cable being stretched past the activation point
Had it been installed on the base it would not have activated
Another case of human error if this is true
