Probably not that much since we have been doing in flight refuelling for fifty ears and snagging a parachute would be at a much, much lower velocity. Catching a parachute with a helicopter is probably the least of their issues.

"Wrap it up in a heat shield" and re-entry are a tad more worrying to me.
