C-9 SLIDER UPGRADE


 

C-9 CANOPY WITH BAT© SOMBRERO SLIDER

C9 CANOPY COMPARISON WITH AND WITHOUT THE SOMBRERO SLIDER

Butler Parachute Systems can modify the stock USAF C-9 parachute canopy to include the BAT Sombrero Slider. This video shows a comparison between the C-9 in the stock condition (no reefing) and the C-9 modified with the BAT Slider. The stock C-9 exhibits the classic post-inflation collapse that is eliminated with the slider.

 

The left-hand video corresponds to a standard USAF C-9 canopy.

The right-hand video is the standard C-9 with the BAT Sombrero Slider.

Same speed, altitude, weight. Consecutive drops.
