AbstractLateral forces exerted on an air inflated, airfoil canopy of an aerial device during towline launching are balanced by slidable displacement of the coupling between the towline and a flexible guide attached at spaced locations to the aerial device. The flexible guide has a triangular configuration to control the distribution of towing force components and corresponding changes in orientation of the aerial device.
