Welcome to Rocketman's Online Store

In the early 70's, Ky Michaelson was introduced to Jim Deist, the founder of Deist Safety Equipment. Jim taught Ky the art and science of parachute manufacturing. Since then, Ky's company Rocketman Enterprise Inc. has sold well over a 100,000 parachutes worldwide. Rocketman customers include: SemQuest, N.A.S.A, Lockheed Martin, MIT, Space-X, Amazon, Microsoft, Dream Chaser Space Craft, Google, C.S.X.T., PMrobotics, Harvard, Yale, Berkeley, California Institute of Technology, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the Armed Forces, many high schools and middle schools. There are many advantages to be using Rocketman Parachutes. The unique parabolic design will cut down on the initial shock of the parachute deployment. Our parachutes use only 4 riser lines, which mean less chance of getting tangled during deployment. Rocketman parachutes are more stable than other parachutes on the market. They don't need a swivel to stop them from spinning, or have a spill hole in the top of the canopy because they were designed right in the first place. Our parachutes come in all sizes from 1ft to 60ft. We offer 4 different materials to choose from, including flame proof chutes to high speed ballistic parachutes. We try keeping over 500 parachutes in stock at all times along with all the other equipment that we manufacture. That allows us to ship the same day we receive the order.
