This feature is specifically for general aviation aircraft that have the option for a BRS system, which is a parachute system used to recover BRS equipped aircraft. It would be neat to have this in infinite flight, especially since there is a mysterious new GA aircraft in the works!
BRS systems are available on:
Cirrus aircraft (also known as the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System)
MaxSez. Only 1 BRS is installed in a Cessna GA. It’s in a test bed 173 utilized for FAA certification last year. It cost $16,000 uninstalled. Installation time 15 houses and you lose 1 seat and reduced payload & performence. The Volcarie is a novelty craft still in development no price tag yet but it will be the most expensive two seat pusher ever conceived I conclude. The SR-22 come with a BRS off the shelf. (This topic should be archived with the Mayday and PanPan ideas that never got out of the barn…).
The Valkyrie is a FIVE seater. Not two. I don’t know why everybody thinks its two. The price tag is incredibly cheap for what it is. 700 thousand US dollars. Compared to some other GA this is nothing. Fastest GA single engine prop plane In the world.
@Thomas_Galvin… MaxSez: Ok Tom it 4/5 place now and still in prototype testing. Regret the error. Who know what it will be until the airworthiness certificate is issued. It was a 2 placer the first time I saw it in Aviation. Really don’t care never will have the money for a look at me toy.
(I take exception to your crass “Do some research” remark. Completely unnecessary! Wanna Sward fight meet me on a PM and we’ll compare appendages! LOL)
