Special Incentives Available For Cirrus, Cessna Owners
By Dan Billingsley
BRS Aerospace President Larry Williams announced Monday at
AirVenture that they will begin providing full repack servicing of
their whole airframe parachute recovery systems. The aircraft
included will be the Cirrus Design SR20 and SR22, as well as
Cessna's 172/182s. Every 10 years repacking is required for an
STC'd unit and will be accomplished through a collaborative network
of certified repair centers.
The training partnership is with Sim Train, LLC who will use
full motion Advanced Airplane Training Devices (AATD). BRS and Sim
Train will present the latest innovations in Scenario Based
Training for parachute deployment decisions by incorporating actual
deployment scenarios into the training session.
The incentive to have BRS do the 10-year repack servicing will
be a certificate for one full hour of full motion simulator
training. The 2010 repack pricing for and overhauled exchange
parachute for Cirrus and Cessna units is $3,682.00 per unit
(excluding labor for removal and replacement) to qualified service
centers throughout the world. BRS is dedicated to offering very
fast service in an effort to get you safely back in the air,
therefore, they boast a 4 day turn-around cycle for units received
at its facilities in South St. Paul, Minnesota.
