May be way to adapt NOAH for everyday use.

That's a really nice idea, but it's 4 inches thick.* How many glider
pilots have 4 inches of head space to accommodate one of these?

Thanks Renny - what a hoot!* I love those old military test films. Oh,
wait!* I was around for a lot of that...

It was a few years back but someone on this group posted pictures of a system he had set up. IIRC, it involved a deflated inner tube, possibly folded in half so you are sitting on a "C" with the open part facing forward, connected to a bottle of compressed air and a valve. When you were ready to get out you slowly opened the valve, the inner tube filled and boom! (I mean, voila!) you were several inches higher. Very basic but it worked or at least he claimed it did.

I see JJ mentioned this a few posts up. Maybe a search could produce the details?

While all good ideas (some rather extreme and not good for day to day), the OP has not stated if this is for an owner that has an issue or "rides", nor has the ship been mentioned.

For some of you, wellllll......, good ideas, but likely the ATF (in the US) may want to talk to you about the devices you are using......LOL.......
Ejection seats.....are some proposing that getting out of the craft also means a chute repack each time?!?! Sounds expensive for a DD.......
Could make some great YouTube videos though.........;-)

And peeps comment on wormburners, low saves, etc.........

some German Akaflieg had worked some time ago on a Ballistic Parachute which pulls the Pilot out of the Cockpit. Sorry no more details that this.

For a small fraction of the price of an installed NOAH system, you could
buy a
copy of Aging Backwards - and get working on a daily stretching program.

Use it or lose it.

I figure the simple way would be to have the seat drop out the bottom and the parachute static lined to the glider. No rockets necessary. Take slightly more altitude than a rocket yank. Way faster than going over the side.
