Parachute extraction tests at AeroSekur

14 September 2011

This video shows deployment of the parachute from its storage bag during dynamic extraction tests at AeroSekur, Aprilia, Italy. The cords (bridles and lines) are released first, followed by the canopy.

The tests were performed at the end of 2010 to verify that the parachute deployed properly from its storage bag. The inflation of the parachute was not assessed during this test - this will be tested later.
