The MC1-1D is a manoeuvrable parachute assembly designed by the United States Army in 1988 from the basic MC1-1B canopy. This tried and tested design is used primarily for premeditated jumps where a precision soft landing in a small target area is necessary.
While Aerodyne might utilise some of the main design constructs of the original design. Our engineers have chosen to opt for MIL-C-5040 T2 Low porosity 1.1oz Ripstop Nylon as a Canopy Material.
The stitch itself utilises reinforcement zigzag stitching was added for main seams.
