Yea, dont be giving them any ideas. They might start supplying you with their own, and charging you for it. 49.99 charge for parachute rental.

9teen Or just have a dozen. Then the stwart starts a bidding war as the plane goes down. The higest bidders get to jump first.

Or maybe other passengers will cling on and the chute is weighed down with two or three bodies.

Re: Why dont they let people on planes carry a parachute?
dude you couldn't jump just like that out of a plane
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1422276


I have in the army years ago yet im still not allowed a parachute on a plane?
If you know how to do it then you should be allowed to jump instead of wait to burn to death.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1413969


so pack your own chute as a carry-on?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1367722


This is my point, its not about charging extra for luggage.
Its illegal to take a parachute on a plane.
And I don't know why.
Most times if there is an emergency they drop below 10k feet anyway instantly its automatic in the plane software.
So you could easily get into the cargo compartment and jump if you know how to do it without getting bashed to shit which I do know how.
But still its illegal.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1413969


The reason(s) would be these:

The parachutes, packed - they would all take room, hell they only give you 20kg as luggage as it is!

Can you imagine everybody trying to get their parachutes on at the same time in an emergency, there isn't enough room to fly a cat on a plane, the chaos would be horrendous.

Who exactly, would they let bail out first? Open the door and let them all bail out - can you seriously imagine, all squashing out the door at the same time because of mass panic, bloody heck the passengers are bad enough when they don't get their inflight drinks on time, let alone bailing out with a parachute!!

Other minor things to take into consideration, the vast majority of people are not trained to open a chute nor to land, you would have bodies lying all over the place, opened up like bags of flour on the ground.

Out of interest, can you even get into the cargo bit from above? There would not be enough time to get people there, there would be crushings, people too scared to move and blocking aisles, the list is endless.

It isn't that they would not allow it, it's that it is not even an option.

Then you'd know that a HAHO jump from 10000m is a whole different drop to exiting a c130 at a few hundred !!!

Different chute for a start, with a drop time of 70- 80 minutes.

Flaming hell, really?

People would be passing out all over the place, freezing to death for a start - half of them would not be kitted out correctly, wearing vest tops and flip flops for their holiday desitinations.

There you go OP, yet another sound reason why chutes would not be allowed!

Don't feel bad OP, I've often thought this was a sensible idea too. I mean, we pay for insurance on our house and cars by law right? Nothing is for certain, especially not at 3,000 ft in the damn sky. But "da man" gets mad when we decide to insure our own ass by taking a parachute on a plane. Just another subtle sign of them saying right to our faces "we own that ass".

Bringing parachutes on an airplane is bad mojo. Everyone knows that.

Clutch your life vest and shut up.

They should let us carry parachutes and 02, in case of an imminent crash.
And jump out the luggage bay which is sealed from the rest of the aircraft.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1413969


Remember your last visit to the local supermarket. Fat lady standing in a 10 foot wide alley, blocking everybody and everything with her huge ass.
Then at the cash counter. People taking fucking YEARS to just pack their shit and pay.
You wouldn't get out alive, because these people will happily block all exits until the plane crashes to the ground.
