  • The Strong Parachutes Cushion Wedge 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, 12, Christen Eagle, RV-4, RV-6, and many others.

    The unique configuration of the 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.
