it just kinda sits there....
Dang!!! You mean I removed my parachute and floatation device for a gel seat?!!!!!!! ha ha ha ha ha!The release in sight, you pull up on it and let go of the right handle and you will be jettisoned up and away from the tunbling cycle, approximately 90 feet in the air [depending on wieght and altitude] where the seat explodes into a netted parachute which opens in about .7 seconds. In the event of a water landing, the remains of the seat can be used a floatation device.
