Parachute training simulator is a powerful simulation tool that gives training starting from the position of free fall to jumpers with scenarios and graphics very close to reality and can perform this education close to reality. Parachute simulator is a cost-effective solution for paratroopers to enhance training, planning, practicing skills and mission readiness in a short notice and safe environment. Parachute training simulator designed parachute training with 3D virtual images are an effective addition to mastering all the necessary parachute dynamics and control by providing a real jump to the staff. The system provides real-time practicing the crucial skills under a wide range of weather conditions, wind and emergency situations while improving mission readiness and performance by using virtual reality with high resolution visual database. Parachute simulator training starts with free fall motion. After the parachute is turned on by the user, it is aimed to be controlled by the parachute control rivers (ripcord) to land at the specified point. A parachute simulator training system generally includes parachute training unit, visual system, instructor console, environmental voice and intercom are the basic units. In this study, the example design procedure is explained for a parachute simulator.
