The F-16 Drogue Parachute System is a flat, circular, continuous ribbon deceleration system. The system incorporates a deployment bag, bridles, buffer, streamer, pilot parachute, main canopy and riser assembly.

Advantages
Use of the Variable Porosity Continuous Ribbon (VPCR) chute results in significantly reduced wear on the expensive carbon wheel brakes, makes short field landings safer (shorter roll out) and stabilizes the aircraft on icy or wet runways.

Advantages of the PAR-1170-00 system include:
  • Long service life
  • Dependable, immediate opening
  • Good cross-wind performance
  • Simple one-man packing
  • High drag efficiency
  • Deployment up to 170 knots
  • System Weight: 20 pounds
