Parachutes for Pilots

Back, Seat, or Chair Pack Parachutes

state-of-the-art pilot parachute systems

We have been designing and building high quality, custom pilot emergency parachutes since 1979. Our engineering, technical, and rigging staff have a combined total of 157 years of experience in the parachute industry. The entire staff at Butler Parachute Systems is focused on producing innovative, state-of-the-art parachute systems with our customer’s safety and comfort in mind.

Whether you are flying coast-to-coast, or pushing hard G’s, you need a parachute that will maximize comfort and not cause pain. A custom fit pilot parachute will ensure a level of comfort only matched by the cushions you’re removing to use the parachute. An emergency bailout from a disabled aircraft demands survival equipment that can push the limits of performance without compromise. Our rugged harness and our high speed canopies will maximize your chances of survival if you ever have to bailout!
