I proudly followed the effective actions of the aerospace forces of Russia in Syria. But I was annoyed and offended by the helplessness of our pilots when they descended on rescue parachutes, because if instead of a bright and neutral parachute they had subtle parachute systems of the “wing” type, then our pilots could fly away from the ejection site at a distance twice the height of the ejection and choose a safe place for landing and evacuation.
In order to replace the parachute system in the ejection seat with a wing-type parachute, it is necessary to perform a large amount of testing with the ejection of the aircraft dummy including. To prevent pilots from dying under combat conditions after the ejection, I propose to modify the parachute system so that its work at extremely low and low altitudes remains unchanged, and at an altitude greater than 1000 meters the pilot could, if necessary, detach from the main rescue parachute, and after uncoupling the main rescue parachute is automatically entered "wing". The pilot, controlling the "wing", flies through the navigator in the right direction. In the case of the death of Oleg Peshkov, this is at least 10 km.
To implement this way, it is necessary to modify the harness to detach the free ends of the main rescue parachute, sew the free ends of the “wing” to the harness, and place the dome in the chamber in the area of the headrest of the ejection seat or on the harness. As a “wing” you can use the already tested reserve parachute with an area of 24 m². The weight of the "wing" with a knapsack and a camera is no more than 4,5 kg, the volume is 6-7 liters.
After such a revision, the reliability and safety of the parachute rescue system is significantly increased, since spare parachutes of the wing-type fabric made of gray-wild color (the color of bombs) are hardly noticeable, easy to operate and do not require lengthy training. To implement this proposal does not require long and costly tests.
Happy holiday dear colleagues !!!
I especially congratulate Konstantin Murakhtin, and I would like to know his opinion about my proposal.
