A parachute is described which consists of a canopy with a polar opening central shroud lines with an elastic link, a braking parachute attached by the elastic link by means of a connecting pull-line. To retard the filling and opening of the canopy of the basic parachute the lower edge of the canopy of the basic parachute is equipped with a draw-in lacing, which breaks upon the pulling out of the connecting pull-line, this line being attached to the shroud of the pull-out parachute by means of an intermediary link which breaks in the air after full stretch-out of the elastic link of the central shroud lines.
