Question

Tangle-free Winch Parachutes


I'm looking for a reliable source for tangle-free winch ’chutes. The ’chute I'm looking for uses fine mesh in place of suspension risers (and works great). Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark C.

I think you are talking about the top of the shute. The mesh stops the ring from falling inside the shute and tangling, correct? If so, I can tell you that I got a hi-start from NESailplane and the shute had the very thing you are talking about. I'm sure they sell them as a single item.

Johnny Berlin has ones like the Nats use. Just post for Johnny on the soaring exchange.

Hey Marc,

Got in touch with Johnny and two ’chutes are on their way.
