Flightstar Delivers The First Certified Light Sport CT with
ASTM Standard Ballistic Parachute at Florida Airshow
BRS is celebrating the arrival of
the first Light Sport Special aircraft at Lakeland, Florida along
with Flightstar President Tom Peghiny. The arrival of this first
FAA approved LSA factory built airplane shows that the industry can
deliver on its promise to make more flying choices available and
safer to a wider group of pilots and passengers. More LSA aircraft
will be certified with the BRS system. The key to more planes
having a BRS will be a collaborative effort between
"This represents a new exciting era in aviation and BRS is very
proud to be a founding player along with CT and Flightstar in
raising the level of safety and passenger comfort " said Larry E.
Williams, president and COO of BRS, Inc. "This is another stage in
our growth and a significant milestone for the aviation industry.
We plan to offer the same suite of products on many new emerging
designs in this industry. Watching this technology be adopted by
more and more manufacturers in a wider variety of aircraft is
gratifying and should lead to more people flying."
"Flightstar has worked very hard to ensure that BRS systems are
integrated and factory installed on planes delivered in the United
States under this new regulation" stated Tom Peghiny - President of
Flightstar and the importer of the European made CT-2 aircraft.
"The arrival of that plane with all the testing, documentation and
certification completed in time for the traditional first aviation
event of the year was gratifying to see. We are working hard to
deliver as many planes as possible as quickly as we finish
Since the early 1980's, BRS has delivered nearly 20,000
parachute systems to aircraft owners around the world, including
over 1,900 systems on certified aircraft like the Cirrus Design
aircraft manufactured in Duluth, Minnesota. Actual documented uses
of BRS systems are credited with saving the lives of 177 people.
Earlier this week, BRS signed a strategic business alliance
agreement with Symphony Aircraft Industries. The joint agreement
allows SAI , to fast track the first factory installations and make
the Three Rivers Quebec, Canada based airplane company the first
certificated high-wing design to offer the BRS on board parachute
system factory installed.
