WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE OF

 

Silver Parachute Sales & Service

 

Silver Parachute Sales & Service has been dedicated to providing in-depth, personal parachute service to aerobatic and glider pilots around the world since 1972

 

==============================================

 

Semi Retirement is Great.

I'm still a dealer for the Softie line of pilot emergency parachutes. I'm their largest dealer, even though at 5'5" and shrinking they say I'm their smallest dealer. I try and keep 20+ parachutes in stock for immediate delivery at all times.

 

LIBERAL TRADE-IN POLICY

If you own a Para-Phernalia Softie pilot emergency parachute and it's reaching (or has reached) the end of it's 20 service life it's worth $300.00 towards the purchase of a new Softie pilot emergency parachute. All you have to do is return your overaged Softie (to me) and I'll credit you $300.00 towards the purchase of a new Softie parachute, of your choice.

==============================================

Of course I'll continue to provides comprehensive emergency bailout training and safety seminars for pilots worldwide.

(Click on Bailout  Seminars on the left for details). You can also click on and download a copy of my handout material below and view my most recent webinar this past October 2020.
