High Altitude Balloon Parachutes

Rocketman Parachutes designs and manufactures all of our parachutes in house, over the years they’ve been used successfully on thousands of High Altitude Balloon Flights around the world! We work closely with hundreds of Individuals, Government Agencies, Science Camps, and Colleges with sending their scientific payloads to the edge of space. The Sky is no longer the Limit with Rocketman, anyone can successfully launch a HAB!

Payload Recovery Parachutes are made of Low-porosity 1.1 Rip-stop Nylon.

The top reinforced-loop on canopy of parachute, attaches to the weather balloon (with shock cord in between). Allows for a strong attachment point, can be attached in seconds.
Our Weather Balloon Chutes are only 4 lines, no worrying about tangling or twisting of the lines. Also included is a cord lock, which can be slid up the parachute for lighter payloads or on windier days to increase decent rate. Easy attachment loop to hook Payload onto.
