I was wondering, in the case of a complete engine failure, why don’t they add parachute(s) on top of the aircraft?

Parachutes come standard on all the Cirrus aircraft http://cirrusaircraft.com
Look at the Cirrus 22.
Sorry forgot about this… http://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2016/03/another-small-plane-parachute-save/472497/
I was thinking more on the commercial side.
It works on smaller aircraft, on larger aircraft it takes too much material to slow the fall rate of such a massive object that its not practical. Plus planes have these things called wings. Even if the engkne quits you can still glide
That seems like a pretty good idea but what about the pilots?
They are working on those designs.
Exactly why it’s still not good…
Captain go down with the ship. Lol
The real question is, why not give the passengers parachutes in case of an emergency? They can just hop out the side of the aircraft and glide down themselves.
Well, unless you’re in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, then GG…
That helps if you’ve already reached cruising altitude and speed. Remember the Hudson crash, might have been a bird strike, but they couldn’t hlidr much as they weren’t high enough.
Pressure is difficult and no floating and seperatation between each passenger that designs stops all then issues
Because people are idiots. Itd probably result in more injury’s than lives saved. In alot of ditching, people inflate the life vests INSIDE the plane, so when the water comes in, they get pinned to the top of the sinking plane and drown
If you’ve seen sully only 2-6 people reportedly put live vests on the rest didn’t
It’s just a case of how many lives would it actually save, and would this Warren the lower payload and range that comes from it
Lots of people are afraid of heights, and at FL 300 AND 370 KTS. LOL
Also your have to train all those people on how to use a parachute
Really want to watch the movie, I watched the aircrash investigation a couple of years before it though xD
