Abstract : A description is given of a proposed parachute pull-out apparatus designed to avoid irregular movement of the parachutist as the canopy of the stabilizing parachute is filled, which may lead to tangling of the parachute. In order to keep the parachute as high and as distant as possible from the aircraft, the pull-out cord is equipped with a hold-up element in the form of a strip of woven material. (Author)
