Parachutes and Planes

February 14th, 2014

Most of us have seen parachutes in movies, especially action movies. But what do parachutes have to do with planes? Let me explain why this post is entitled this way. Usually the only thing that parachutes have to do with planes is that they are stored on them, so that the crew on board can use them when necessary. But parachutes can not only protect people, but also planes. I was amazed to hear that there is a plane that uses a parachute to drift safely to earth, in case of emergencies. This parachute can be used in planes which are small and do not weight a lot, so do not expect those parachutes to become very popular and used by major airlines.
