parachute experts, Allen Silver has been an FAA Master Rigger since
1974. Designated as a Parachute Rigger Examiner for the FAA
in 1991, he now serves as chairman of the Parachute Industry
Association (PIA) Rigging Committee.
Silver sat down with Aero-TV to share his most invaluable safety
tips for emergency bailout preparation.
In the second part of his four part series, Allen Silver
addresses common misconstrued beliefs about emergency bailout
procedures. Pilots often misunderstand certain issues
involving parachute usage, such as the time it takes for full
deployment. Join Aero-TV as Allen Silver tackles these
everyday parachute misconceptions.

the owner and operator of Silver Parachute Sales &
Service. As specialist in emergency parachutes, Silver

In addition, the company provides in-depth parachute assistance,
