Does anyone have a Cross-Over chart for Estes Parachute Type Numbers?
I am looking for a Type: PK-24A, (P/N 85568). Is this a 24-Inch Diameter ???

Yes, that is a 24" chute. The number associated with PK is the chute size in diameter.

Thank You for your help !!!
Can I assume that the "PK" portion of the Type number stands for "Parachute Kit" ???
