Ballistic Recovery System (BRS) for Cessna 182 STC to Offer Useful Load Increase 
 Safety System offers 160 pound gross weight increase 

South Saint Paul, MN, January 6, 2014 – BRS Aerospace, manufacturer of whole aircraft parachute systems, recently announced Cessna 182P, Q model owners who purchase and install a BRS system in their aircraft will not only gain the added flying safety for themselves and their passengers, but will also gain a 160-pound gross weight increase. The BRS is STC approved for the Cessna 172 and 182 models.

This new iteration of the BRS will increase the NET useful load by 65-75 pounds after the installation of the parachute, and most importantly, will NOT require any modifications or additional hardware to the airframe once the BRS unit is installed.

“This is great news for those C182 owners who may have wanted to install a BRS, but were hesitant due to the decrease in net useful load,” stated Boris Popov, founder and SVP of BRS Aerospace. “Now, operators can fly with the assurance of a BRS on board, and have an additional 65-75 pounds of useful load to utilize as they wish. This is a win/win opportunity for operators.”

In addition, this new option will be at no extra cost to the purchaser, and is now included in every BRS C182P, Q sold.

“Gain Safety, Gain Payload….the weight is over.”

BRS AEROSPACE ANNOUNCES INNOVATIVE SAFETY PARACHUTE FOR VANS RV-7 and RV-9 SERIES AIRCRAFT

South St. Paul, MN, July 25, 2013 — BRS Aerospace is pleased to announce the availability of a BRS whole-airframe emergency recovery system for the Vans RV-7 and RV-9. The bag deployed system meets the ASTM Standard F 2316-12 for recovery parachutes. The unit is stowed in a specially designed frame suspended from structural aluminum angles spanning the upper aircraft longerons on each side of the aircraft on the back side of the aft baggage bulkhead. It deploys out of the right side of the fuselage behind the wing and angled upwards.

“We are very excited to release this installation to the Vans Aircraft market,” says BRS Aerospace CEO, Larry E. Williams. “We listened to the customer base and responded”. Our most frequently request for an installation is on a Vans Aircraft – BRS Aerospace answered with the installation kit you see today that incorporates key features to allow the kit builder to perform the installation. “I am very proud of our designers and engineers who crafted such a well-thought out solution for the Vans RV-7 and -9,” Mr. Williams added.

BRS Aerospace will display the RV-9 installation on a fuselage at its booth during EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh next week.

Since 1981, BRS has delivered more than 30,000 parachute systems to aircraft owners worldwide, including over 3,500 systems on FAA-certificated aircraft. To date, BRS parachute recovery systems have been credited with saving the lives of 299 pilots and passengers. To promote this new installation, BRS Aerospace is offering a corresponding $299 discount to customers who place an order and put down a deposit on the system during AirVenture.

The installation kit for the RV-7/9 series is now offered for sale with a lead-time of approximately 6-8 weeks after placement of the order.
