Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Is Parachute Operation Training offered as a part of Professional Pilot Training Program ?.

In case if it is not part of the Pilot training program, do you feel it could be useful to the Pilot ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
I refer you to the discussion here below:

http://flighttraining.aopa.org/magazine/2002/July/200207_Departments_Legal_Brief

This briefing assumes that all commercial pilots have had parachute training throughout the early stages of the training progressions.

It should be a "must" for inclusion in their training.  Many commercial pilots come out of military service where they have already received much  training in their military careers which gives considerable training and experience using parachutes.

Best wishes.
