Softie Parachutes

We are proud to be able to supply probably the best make of emergency parachute available today - the Softie Emergency Parachute range.

The two main styles of chutes are the ‘Backpack’ and the ‘Seat Pack’.

The ever popular Mini and Micro Softie is designed specifically to add lumbar and sacral support during high positive G maneuvers. It is ideal for the upright seating found in most aerobatic cockpits. Highly recommended for aerobatic pilots. Total weight is only 15lbs. Aerobatic harness set up available FOC.

The Softie Micro is designed for flight weights up to 180lbs and the Mini for weights up to 240lbs.


The Seatpack Softie ParachuteThe Seat Pack

The Softie Seat Pack is designed for use in aircraft that simply have no room for a backpack style parachute, this is a seat style that offers the same comfort and reliability as other Softie models. Most popular application is ex-military aircraft such as Chipmunks, Yaks and Harvards.

The Softie Seat pack is available in both 180lbs and 240lbs versions. Total weight is only 16lbs
