I'll be moving around September of this year and have reduced my remaining seatbelt webbing and hardwar, my Gallet Helmet parts and what remains of my parachute rigging tools. I prefer not to have to take them with me. This is your chance to pick up great deals on my remaining stock.

Allen Silver owns and operates Silver Parachute Sales & Service located in Sonora California. It is located about 1 hour from Yosemite National Park. He relocated his business here in October 2012 after spending over thirty years in Hayward, CA. Don't get Sonora cofused with Sonoma, CA. Sonora is in the heart of where gold was first discovered in California in 1849. My license plate frame says: Sonora Not Sonoma. Gold Not Grapes.
I've been an FAA Master Rigger since 1974 and in 1991 was designated as a Parachute Rigger Examiner for the FAA. A position I held until moving to Sonora. I also served three terms as the chairman of the Parachute Industry Association (PIA) Rigging Committee, a worldwide organization that represents the parachute industry.
Having spent 25 years with the California Air National Guard, I retired in 1991. Eighteen of those years were spent as a Survival Equipment Technician working with parachutes, liferafts, and other life support equipment. This background has been beneficial in obtaining contracts with NASA and other aerospace companies requiring services for sophisticated and specialized parachutes.
In 1962 at the age of seventeen, I made my first parachute jump in Southern California after watching the old television series Ripcord. I made over 3200 parachute jumps as a sport and professional skydiver.
After 55 years of jumping, and not missing a year, I decided to retire, in 2017, and spend more time inside the aircraft. It was a GREAT JOURNEY.
For three seasons I performed a wingwalking/skydiving routine at airshows throughout the western United States with Eddie Andreini on his Super Stearman. I returned to flying and have over 1900 plus hours of which more than 1200 are in a Marchetti SF-260. I also enjoy swimming, hiking, scuba diving, photography and a good glass of wine or two.
