Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I saw this question, which then sparked mine: Outside of a mission/job, where can I get a new parachute?

Are the locations to getting a parachute different in online play vs single player?

I have had one in my inventory earlier, but I used it when I bailed out of a helicopter. My character doesnt want to reuse the parachute after using it once....

I tagged both online and gta 5 because of my second question –  Zero Stack Oct 17 '13 at 16:50
    
I think I remember hearing (in game) that you can buy them from Ammu-Nation. Not sure though. –  ChargingPun Oct 17 '13 at 17:32
    
I think I remember an ingame tip saying you automatically get a parachute (for free) as soon as you enter a plane or helicopter. –  Nolonar Oct 17 '13 at 17:43

In single player the parachute unlocks in ammunation after you complete the mission minor turbulence.

In GTA Online the parachute (and the parachuting activity) unlocks at level 11. Then it becomes available for purchase at Ammunation.

You can also find parachutes around the map, such as on top of the FIB building. According to Gizmo3k you may pick these up and use them before unlocking them at level 11.

See here for more detailed information about unlocks in GTA Online.

Only after doing the mentioned mission I believe –  Bob Fincheimer Oct 17 '13 at 20:55
    
Mt. Chilliad is also filled with parachutes! –  Emil Kistrup Oct 18 '13 at 17:23

I haven't played online yet but on the story mode/free roam after you play the mission where Trevor tails the Merryweather airplane and jumps out with a parachute. Parachutes becomes available in Ammunation. They should be on the left most aisle and its the second or third item from the top.

You will also get a text message for all the characters from Ammunation that parachute is available to buy after that mission.

In GTA Online, you can find, wear and use parachutes before rank 11. I found one on top of the tall circular building in the middle of the city, just below the helipad. I also found one on the big green bridge overlooking the docks (near where Franklin snipes from if you do the dock heist).

I used it successfully last night, right before I hit rank 11.

I think that if you go into a plane that you've brought, and you've brought a parachute before then you get it for free. It works with me when I go in my Cuban 800.

Also at the Vinewood sign' if you climb the "D" there's a parachute. Another I've found is on a bridge that can be easily found by going to the Los santos customs and following the train track on the left all the way to the bridge.
