SOUTH SAINT PAUL, Minn. — BRS Aerospace, manufacturer of whole aircraft parachute systems, recently reported that Cessna 182P and Q model owners who install a BRS system will 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 will not require any modifications or additional hardware to the airframe once the BRS unit is installed, company officials said.
“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,” said Boris Popov, founder 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 and Q sold, officials noted.
