BRS Aerospace Positions Installation Network for Cessna 172/182 Aircraft Parachute Recovery Systems
South St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 2, 2017 - BRS Aerospace has established a nationwide Cessna Parachute System Authorized Installation Network to handle whole aircraft parachute installations on the sizeable Cessna 172 and 182 single-engine piston powered fleets.

"The network of factory-approved installation centers are all equipped and qualified to install the BRS Aerospace whole aircraft parachute recover systems in 172s and 182s providing an unprecedented level of safety for legacy aircraft and newer models," said BRS Aerospace President Enrique Dillon. "BRS has the only FAA/EASA certified aircraft parachute systems for Cessna 172/182s available today."

The level of safety provided by the ballistic recovery system for owners and operators of Cessna 172s and 182s is comparable to a similar system on the world's best-selling single-engine piston powered aircraft and every new certified aircraft with six seats or less under development today.

Installation kits for the Cessna 182 Skylane are $17,500 and the Cessna 172 installation kit is $15,500, plus installation fees. The BRS system is approved for Cessna 182s manufactured from 1964 and newer, and Cessna 172s manufactured in 1966 and newer. Listed below are qualified installation centers covering the United States from coast to coast.

BRS Aerospace is the world leader in whole aircraft parachute systems with more than 35,000 delivered to aviation segments including Light Sport Aircraft, experimentals, ultralights, unmanned vehicles, military aircraft and FAA/EASA Type Certified general aviation, including the most popular piston-powered aircraft. The system has been successfully deployed multiple times and the company has documented 374 lives saved as a result of its safety device.

BRS Aerospace's whole aircraft parachute system design calls for a parachute ballistic launcher to be installed in the aircraft with either a pilot-initiated activator located in the cockpit or an automated activation system. Upon activation, a ballistic rocket propels a parachute into the airstream to slow the airplane and float it down into a survivable vertical landing

The system is designed to be a last resort for pilots and passengers when all other attempts to recover the airplane in case of emergency or pilot incapacitation have failed. 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.
