Default Where to get type IIIa Estes parachutes

Hi All,

I have a PK-18 Estes "orange burst" parachute that I bought sometime during the last 8 years or so but I can't remember where I got it. I was wondering if anybody knows a vendor who makes/sells parachutes like these.

Thanks,

Alan

I have Several of these in orange and white. New some shroud lines NO tape Strips.
I will sell you 3 @ $ 20.00 shipped. Payment can only be USPS MO: NO PAYPAL.
The Parachutes will ship by USPS in a 1st. Class Envelope.

I have (1) 18 orange and white like that and (1) 12 red and white like that that you can have. The red and white has shroud line and tape dots. The orange and white does not. Both of these parachutes are old and neither of them have been cut out.

PM your mailing address to me if you would like either or both of them.

Hi! What is meant by "Type IIIa" in the thread title? I've never heard this term.

Its a mil spec I believe, what the chute material is made out of and the strength of it, etc.

It's a way some Estes historians have classified different eras of parachutes. Here's a thread that discusses it.

I've owned my '65 Dart for over 30 years now. It has a 225 slant six and is actually pretty quick off the line. More importantly, it's never let me down or left me on the side of the road

Why give the man a hard time? He does not need you or your thoughts on his motor. Go build another rocket.
