Para-Phernalia, Inc. Introduces Wider, Thinner Mini Softie

Making It A Bit Wider Makes It Thinner And Helps Larger Pilots Fit In Their Birds

By ANN Correspondent Juan Jimenez

At Sun-N-Fun 2004, Para-Phernalia, booths B-43 and B-70 in Hangar B has introduced a new version of the popular Mini emergency parachute to give pilots in cramped cockpits more working room and comfort.

The Mini Softie is an extremely small, lightweight and comfortable backpack parachute system designed for use in today's restricted cockpit environments.

The Mini Softie is for use by persons weighing up to 240 lbs., and is available with a conventional or aerobatic harness. The container is 2.25" thick x 15" wide x 24" long.

This parachute is now available in a type of pack that is one inch wider, which results in a pack that is also one inch thinner. This reduces the size of the pack by an inch. If the customer has chosen the optional sweat pad, this means that the total thickness would be reduced from three inches to two.
