In ACE you need an actual parachute in order to open one! :)

Make sure your back is clear (move your radio/weapon/backpack to your back first!) then use Gear on the vehicle from the outside to get either a T-10 or MC-5 parachute and put it in your launcher slot. T-10 are passive "normal" parachutes where you just fall. MC-5 is a steerable parachute.

If you get into the vehicle and take off before getting a parachute you're still OK as long as you have nothing on your back. Open the Map and click on Units then find yourself and click on [Gear] and you'll see the parachutes in there you can fit from that screen.

Once you have a parachute on you and you're in a vehicle simply use the Jump Out command to leave the vehicle. If you have T-10 it'll deploy automatically after a few seconds. If you have an MC-5 you'll need to use the "Pull Rip Cord" action menu per normal. Pull it before you get below 400m or so usually. You can sometimes get as low as 200m, but careful!

Every default air vehicle should have at least 1 T-10 parachute in them.

The C-130J is probably the best as it has something like 30 parachutes.

To get an ammobox of these things, I think Ruck box has them? Or just make a custom one. Put down any ammo box and put this in it's init field:

clearMagazineCargo this; clearWeaponCargo this; this addWeaponCargo ["ACE_ParachutePack", 30]; this addWeaponCargo ["ACE_ParachuteRoundPack", 30];

That will turn the box into nothing but parachutes, 30 of each type.

Once you're on the ground you can even recover the parachute. Look around to see where it fell, walk over and use "Repack Parachute" option. A little progress bar will appear. As soon as the parachute disappears look around near you for the backpack on the ground and pick it up to recover the parachute.
