Best Answer

Apart from anything else,it's not a great idea to attempt a parachute jump from 35,000 feet,even if the aircraft was flying over suitable terrain.

Best Answer

Isn't the altitude generally way to high for that to be practicle

I didn't put much research into it, just thought it would recreate some hilarious scenes from "Airplane"

Best Answer

They wouldn't be inclined to try so hard to save a plane going down if they had an "easy way out"!!

Best Answer

Why don't they just have a big parachute for the entire airplane

Best Answer

Because an accidental deployment mid flight just wouldn't have the same awkward comedic effect.

Best Answer

1 - Airliners rarely crash in a manner in which a parachute is useful<br />
<br />
2 - What would the passengers do after the pilots ejected?<br />
<br />
3 - Ejection seats would then require pilots to wear helmets, oxygen masks and other special equipment required for ejections. <br />
<br />
4 - A parachute for the whole airplane is simply unfeasible.
