Many people who have ever had to fly in an airplane probably wondered why they did not issue parachutes on the plane in case of a crash.
We believe that every question should be tried to find the answer. Especially so important.

The absence of parachutes in passenger aircraft is explained by several reasons:
1. Passenger aircraft - very reliable car. For comparison: the probability of dying during the flight is 1:11 000 000, and in an accident - 1: 5 000.
2. The plane flies at an altitude of about 10–12 km at a speed of 800–1000 km / h. A parachute in such conditions is simply useless: overboard temperature is from −40 ° C to −60 ° C, rarefied atmosphere and practically no oxygen. In such conditions, a person simply will not survive.

3. Any entry into the zone of turbulence can cause panic in especially impressionable passengers. This can aggravate the atmosphere during the flight and make it unbearable for some people.
4. More accidents occur during takeoff or landing.In this case, passengers simply do not have time to use a parachute, because at such a low altitude he simply will not have time to open up.
5. At the time of the crash, people are in a panic - it will be extremely difficult for them to put on a parachute and get to the jump site in an organized way.

6. To transport a set of parachutes per 100-500 people is extremely expensive. After all, airplanes will have to be loaded with an impressive amount of extra weight - they will have nowhere to put passengers' baggage. In addition, this will lead to higher prices for air tickets, because the cost of a parachute is quite high.
