Re: [Skyper] Intentional Breakaways

 Speaking of the system we used to use....We had two mains, with a reserve on the front, you could chop both mains.

On other systems, the tertiary has no pilot chute, is a roundie and is deployed by hand, i.e. you pull the ripcord, take hold of the canopy and throw it away from you, then feed out the lines.

Its how reserve procedures used to be back before cutaways were common.

A bit scary if you are in a spin, you have to remember to throw the reserve into the spin.

This kind of tertiary is the type used by hang glider pilots.
