SOUTH ST. PAUL, MINN. – BRS Aerospace has named another five Cessna Parachute System Authorized Installation Centers in North America and South Africa to handle whole aircraft parachute installations on the Cessna 172 and 182 aircraft fleets. BRS offers a whole aircraft parachute system for Cessna 182s manufactured in 1964 and newer, and Cessna 172s manufactured in 1966 and newer.
“The BRS ballistic recovery system for owners and operators of Cessna 172s and 182s is very comparable to systems on the world’s best-selling single-engine piston powered aircraft,” said BRS President/Director Enrique Dillon. “With these five added facilities, BRS just made it even easier to find a qualified facility to install these lifesaving safety devices.”
New Cessna Installation Centers approved by BRS Aerospace include Absolute Aviation Group in South Africa; Brant Aero in Brantford, Ontario, Canada; Clearwater Aviation in Clearwater, Fla.; Total Avionix in Latana, Fla.; and Vector Air in Erie, Colorado.
Installation kits for the Cessna 182 Skylane are $17,500 and $15,500 for the Cessna 172, plus installation fees.
BRS Aerospace was founded in 1980 in South St. Paul, Minn. It has manufacturing facilities at South St. Paul Municipal Airport and in Pine Bluff, N.C. For more information go to www.brsaerospace.com.
