Obviously enter autorotation first, establish a ROD then deploy the shute, then confirm deployment of shute before gently raising lever to bleed off RRPM and apply rotor brake I should think... Could be useful if donk quits at night or IIMC etc or if over a city where you would not want a spinning rotor to decapitate pedestrians...
