Cargo Delivery Systems

Airborne Systems designs, develops and manufactures a complete line of cargo delivery parachute systems to carry payloads weighing between 100 – 42,000 lb. These aerial delivery systems were designed using the most advanced technology to deliver supplies to military forces and humanitarian missions on land and water accurately, autonomously and economically.

Airborne Systems aerial delivery solutions have been recognized and trusted for the last 20 years for use in military and special operations, humanitarian organizations, and civilian search and rescue operations.


All of our GPADS platforms have been developed and manufactured by Airborne Systems. The MicroFly®, FireFly®, and DragonFly® systems are capable of delivering payloads from 200 – 10,000 lb (90.7 – 4535.9 kg). Airborne Systems has also developed the MegaFly™ and GigaFly™ which increase the payload range to over 40,000 lb (18100 kg).  All operate with a common algorithm, user interface, and mission planner.  The packing methodology for all systems is identical, so little additional training is required to qualify riggers on different systems
