What Clients Say About Us

Thought I would send you some feedback about the fruity chute I received and have flown about half dozen times now. In a nut shell, the chute is really great and I am very pleased with its performance. I particularly like the thin fabric which packs great into a small compartment (2.5" dia.).

Hi Gene, Just wanted to let you know that I got the parachutes today and I must say…WOW! I am impressed! I expected that they would be nice; I had no idea that they would be THIS nice! I am way more than just pleased and thought you should know!

Cameron Tinder - Tinder Rocketry

As a former member of the US Parachute Team, and as a FAA Licensed Senior Parachute Rigger, I am exceptionally picky about parachutes. The Fruity Chutes are not only made to manned parachute quality, but offer amazing efficiency - which is why they're the only parachutes in my rockets!
