The Chernis collapsible main pilot chute with black hackey is a kill-line replacement pilot chute. The Chernis main pilot chute features a window to check that the pilot chute is cocked.
This collapsible replacement main pilot chute is manufactured by Larry Chernis, the former manufacturer of the Infinity container who has 35 years of manufacturing/rigging experience. These pilot chutes can be used on any container and are in stock with white F-111 pilot chute fabric and a black hackey.
The Chernis Pilot Chutes currenly come in 28", 30" and 32" sizes in the F-111 fabric, and standard or wingsuit bridle lengths. The 28" size is designed for canopies 150 square-feet or smaller. The 30" size is designed for canopies 160-square-feet to 230-square-feet. The 32" size is designed for canopies 240-square-feet or larger and/or larger wingsuit or AFF student applications.
Custom color pilot chutes and hackeys are available by request. The wingsuit bridle length for wingsuit setups is available at no extra charge.
Chernis Pilot Chutes come with a rapide link connector for assembly to the d-bag. ChutingStar recommends using a PD Reserve Slink for the D-bag connection to reduce the amount of metal inside the D-bag. Select the Slink option to have one PD Reserve Slink added to this pilot chute order.
Note: The ChutingStar Expert Advice video shows two link attachements for the older version of the Cazer Pilot Chute, which includes using a metal or soft link to attach the end of the bridle to the top of the canopy. The Chernis Pilot Chute includes a larger loop at the end of the bridle. This large loop allows the bridle attachment to be secured with a larks head knot, so a link at this location is not needed. A link is only used to secure the bridle to the main D-bag.
ChutingStar stocks all sizes and configurations of the Chernis Pilot Chutes for immediate shipment. Custom color requests have a 2-week turnaround time, and color availability will have to be verified with the manufacturer.
