What is a Cargo Chute?
A cargo chute is a special kind of parachute developed for the delivery of important cargo. Cargo chutes can carry anywhere between 100 and 42,000 pounds and are made with the most advanced cargo delivery technology. Every branch of the Armed Forces including the Army, Navy, Marines, and Airforce uses cargo chutes. In an emergency or in a military operation it is essential that valuable cargo make it to the ground. A high quality, state of the art cargo chute is key to the success of many ground missions whether they are military, humanitarian, or commercial. This is why it is important to find a cargo chute manufacturer that has experience, knowledge, and a level of craftsmanship that is superior and has been tested over time.
