EAA AirVenture Attendees Offered Special on Cessna 172/182 Parachute Recovery Systems
aerobd.news : BRS Aerospace is offering a 10 percent discount on installation kits for whole aircraft parachute recovery systems installed on Cessna 172s and 182s to attendees at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017. The pre-discount cost for the Cessna 182 Skylane kit is $17,500 and the Cessna 172 installation kit is $15,500.
To receive the discount coupons, attendees at EAA AirVenture should stop by the AVEMCO Insurance Company Booth 1159-1160 in Hangar A Tuesday, July 25 through Thursday July 27. (Special conditio ns apply.) The installation kits can be installed at any BRS Cessna Parachute System Authorized Installation Network facility or by a qualified A&P mechanic.
BRS Aerospace is the world leader in whole aircraft parachute systems with more than 30,000 provided to aviation segments including piston and jet powered aircraft, light sport aircraft, ultralights, remotely piloted vehicles and military aircraft. The safety device has been successfully deployed multiple times and the company has documented more than 370 lives saved as a result of the safety device.
“This is a great opportunity for owners and operators of Cessna 172s and 182s to have this proven safety device installed on their aircraft at a lower cost than normal,” said BRS Aerospace President Enrique Dillon. “The system is standard safety equipment on the most popular new production single-engine piston aircraft, and Cessna 172/182 owners and operators and their families would have increased peace of mind and benefit substantially with the installation.”
BRS Aerospace’s whole aircraft parachute system design calls for a parachute/ballistic launcher to be installed behind the passenger seats in the cargo area with a pilot-initiated activator located in the cockpit. Upon manual activation a ballistic rocket propels a large parachute to carry the plane as it floats down. The system is designed to be a last resort for pilots and passengers when all other attempts to recover the airplane have failed in inflight emergencies.
BRS Aerospace was founded in 1980 in South St. Paul, Minn. It has manufacturing facilities at the South St. Paul Municipal Airport and in Pine Bluff, N.C.
