I don”t understand — these planes are not prone to break-up in flight — I would rather glide to the ground than float down into an electrical substation or onto cross country power lines — these devices will only open the door for pilots to take chances with weather or their lack of training — I can always use the parachute.

Re the BRS Recovery System for the Cessna 172. Since there is no installation company in Canada can we do it ourselves? My company Brewer Aviation Inc rebuilds older airplanes in PEI, Canada.
