These C-9 type parachutes are the same ones used in the ACES II ejection seats in F-15, F-16, pretty much all current U.S. jet fighters and personal parachutes in cargo airplanes like the C-130.


The ones I have are manufactured in 1998. C-9's are perfect replacement canopies, and are perfect parachutes to install in new Strong Seat Model 304 Seat, 306 Squadron Seat or the L-39 Back System at reasonable prices. These chutes are unused-still in the original packing. There is no life limit on these parachutes, Shipping Wt 14 lbs, shipping not included. These are tough parachutes, Weight limits 254 lbs +, Speed Limits 180 mph +.
