The BRS parachute systems are offered on CubCrafters’ production Carbon Cub SS aircraft, as well as the company’s Carbon Cub FX Builder Assist model and its EX-2 kit.
Systems are also available for retrofit on CubCrafters’ existing fleet of LSA and experimental aircraft.
Three new BRS models are immediately available for these CubCrafters airplanes:
- New production LSA aircraft, including the Carbon Cub SS, for gross weight up to 1,320 pounds (1,430 pounds on floats). For this configuration, the BRS system weighs 34.3 lbs. and is priced at $13,990 installed.
- Retrofit on the existing fleet of LSA Carbon Cub and Sport Cub models, for gross weight up to 1,320 pounds (1,430 pounds on floats). This version weighs 41.4 pounds and is priced at $15,990 installed.
- Carbon Cub EX-2 and FX experimental aircraft for gross weight up to 1,865 pounds. This configuration weighs 43.5 pounds and is priced at $11,990 as a kit, or $15,990 installed.
The new BRS systems require annual inspection, a parachute repack every six years, and a rocket refresh every 12 years.
These services, as well as installation of retrofit systems on fleet aircraft, can be performed at CubCrafters’ Yakima, Washington, facility and at select CubCrafters Authorized Service Centers in the near future.
The first CubCrafters BRS system has already been installed and delivered on a new Carbon Cub SS, company officials report.
