Abstract : A dynamic parachute four-line release simulator device which allows aircrewmen to practice the steps necessary to assure a safe parachute descent and landing following emergency aircraft egress. The device is suspended at a desired height adjacent a raised platform, and is constructed of a cross-braced metal ring having parachute suspension lines connected thereto via bungee cords and eye bolts; a parachute riser assembly, which serves as an attachment point for aircrewmen trainees, is connected to the suspension lines via metal connector links.
