Every T2 has a Brakechute fitted for every single flight but they only use them when needed

They are required to deploy the chute every couple of weeks on each aircraft.

Thanks for sharing, you learn something every day, are there any other aircraft that may have these 'chutes that we don't know about?
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!
