Air Landing Bags & Cushions
For many years, Checkmate have designed, produced and manufactured complex shaped bellows and fabrications used to cushion loads parachuted from aircraft. These systems are used to airdrop combat supplies, humanitarian aid, stores, and vehicles onto land drop zones.
Air Landing Cushions
Our design incorporates a system to fill a bellows that is suspended below the load with air on its descent then controls the exhaust from the bellows allowing a regulated deceleration of the load.
The modular design allows multiple units to be harnessed together depending on the load being dropped.
