Para-Cushion Back 311
Our model 311 is recommended for use in airplanes where headroom is at a minimum and the backrest is at a straight upright angle with the seat bottom, such as a Pitts S1, Pitts Model 12, Christen Eagle, RV-4, RV-6, Harmon Rocket, and many others.
Measuring 24" tall by 16" wide by 1" thin at the shoulders and 3" thick at the lower back, this is a very special back mounted container.
The unique configuration of our Para-Cushion Back 311 allows for maximum comfort of the pilot by using the special wedge shape of the parachute system to put you in a slightly reclined, much more comfortable position.
Mini Back version also available.
Aerobatic harness. This harness option moves the snaps that normally sit on top of the pilots legs, to your chest, where there is no pressure from a seat belt. This works best where a Hooker Harness Ratchet type seat belt is used.
Quick Ejector Snaps. This is the Military type hardware that can be used in place of the standard B-12 snaps. Works best for former military pilots who have become accustomed to this type of hardware.
