Collins ParaNav: A Must for the Male Parachutist


Men in motion get lost because men on the move won’t ask for directions, or so the saying goes.

With Rockwell Collins’ new ParaNew GPS however, males, at least those hanging on a parachute, will be able to find their way without ever asking.

The avionics maker says the new system, which consists of a miniature flight management system and GPS receiver integrated into a helmet with a small Head-Up display, will help with situational awareness and allow the parachuter to find the right landing zone. Failing that, he’ll be able to plop down at a proper alternate.
