Butler Parachute Systems manufactures parachutes with flotation and survival equipment stowage integrated into the parachute system. Several different integrated assemblies are available on a special order basis. We also manufacture a survival equipment vest (both with and without flotation) that can be worn under any parachute system and raft packages that can be sat on, worn behind the back or strapped onto your leg.
All flotation bladders used by Butler Parachute Systems are either FAA TSO'd products or new US Navy or Air Force items, procured from suppliers on the Qualified Products List (QPL). They are inspected and serviced in accordance with the applicable instructions at our FAA Approved Repair Station for inflatables (BQWR044K).
