Parachute technology doesn't seem to have got much lighter in the past few decades. It seems that most emergency parachutes designed for pilots still weigh about 15 lb. And yet a Cirrus BRS designed to support over 10× the weight of a human is only 30lb and you can get reserve canopies designed for ultralights as light at 2lb.
Compare Mid-Lite 26' (7lb) with Gin Yeti UL (2.6lb) that has the same weight rating and sink rate and presumably better sink rate stability due to being cruciform. What's the advantage to the Mid-Lite?
Where are the 2-5 lb emergency parachutes for aircraft pilots?
