NOTICE

Ask about my 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 twenty year 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. This includes custom colors a carry bag and free shipping in the U.S.

 

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

 

Every used parachute receives a thorough inspection and any necessary repairs to make sure it's airworthy, before I'll place it on my website. A fair market value is placed on each parachute using the guidelines established in my article titled "Before You Buy Your Parachute" in the Articles section of my website.

A ram-air parachute typically is purchased by people flying at high field elevations or weighing a few pounds more than......and want to have the ability to landing softly. There are drawbacks and many pluses to owning such a parachute. However, you cannot let someone without ram-air experience borrow it.
