Successful CAPS Deployment Brings SR22 Back To Earth In Western NM

200th BRS Save!!!

ANN REALTIME REPORTING 04.10.07 1800 EDT: Aero-News has received confirmation the Monday CAPS deployment by the pilot of a Cirrus SR22 near the Arizona/New Mexico border, was the 200th recorded save by a Ballistic Recovery System (BRS) parachute. BRS, of St. Paul, MN supplies the CAPS parachute system to Cirrus.

Original Report

1100 EDT: Aero-News has learned of a successful deployment of the onboard parachute recovery system on a Cirrus SR22.

New Mexico television station KOB-4 reports the pilot, 32-year-old James Turpen, was able to walk away from the crash landing Monday in Catron County, near the Arizona-New Mexico border.

ANN has received preliminary reports stating the plane encountered icing conditions. That assessment differs from the account Turpen told KOB, however -- that the aircraft experienced engine problems, which led him to deploy the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System.

KRQE-13 reports the crew onboard a C-130 aircraft from the 58th Special Operations Wing at Kirtland Air Force Base located the aircraft. Video of the mountainside accident site shows the plane on its roof, with the empennage separated from the aircraft.

FAA records list the aircraft as N953CD, a 2005 SR22 registered to JCT Leasing company in Centennial, CO. The aircraft was on an IFR flight plan from Marana, AZ to Centennial.

Aero-News stresses all information regarding the accident is preliminary. We will report further information as it becomes available.
