5. Reserve Deployment System. The reserve deployment system consists of the items shown below.
The reserve pilot chute is constructed to provide a maximum amount of drag during a low speed
canopy deployment. The reserve pilot chute is connected to an 18-foot bridle line with deployment
assist pockets that, in case the pilot chute is unable to deploy due to entanglement, should alone
create sufficient drag to deploy the reserve canopy successfully. The deployment bag is not attached
to the canopy, allowing the parachute to deploy even in situations of pilot chute entanglement with the
parachutist or a horseshoe malfunction.
