This patent discloses a collision avoidance system having a seat parachute deployment system secured to the pilots seat. The seat parachute deployment system has a flap member secured to the survival kit on the side remote from the pilot. The flap member drops down to prevent entanglement of the seat parachute or suspension lines with the pilots legs. The seat parachute is stowed in an elongated sleeve on the flap and is drawn from the sleeve during seat separation. The suspension lines are stowed in a conventional manner. A connecting line, connected between the suspension lines and seat attachment lines, is stowed in elongated sleeves on the flap. Author
