Why don't commercial airliners keep parachutes in the planes?

Physics of Sky Diving

Hi Captain,

Why don't commercial airliners keep parachutes in the planes?

I heard about one reason that keeping parachutes doesn't make much sense as most accidents occur during take-off or landing when there is no scope for parachute usage.

However I have seen occurrences where both the engines failed mid-air and the plane can glide for 2-3 minutes before it starts falling off.

In that case, parachutes can be helpful aren't they?

Hi Mohsin,

This question has been thoroughly covered in my article ‘Perils of Parachuteshere and also in my book ‘Life in the Skies

Enjoy the article and the accompanied videos..
