New Parachute Deployment System

Finished Parachute Canisters

For the 2019 season, we were determined to eliminate all possible parachute deployment failures and simplify the system.  We got all of the stakeholders together and over a period of a couple of months finalized a design that eliminated a lot of the complexity.  The results are new stainless steel tubes that will be painted with Teflon interior paint and removal of all mechanical devices and remote batteries.

An extensive amount of welding was required
