Parachutes for Planes


I had the opportunity to meet Boris Popov, founder of the BRS company that created the Ballistic Recovery System.  I refueled his airplane and asked about the parachute in the back window.  Like a proud father, he told me exactly how the system works.  Much to the consternation of the Air Force VIPs that were standing there ready to greet him.  He was there to sell the system to the Air Force for their drones.

A father and daughter survived a crash by deploying their plane’s emergency parachute during an engine failure.

25 JAN 2015-The pilot of a single engine Cirrus SR-22 aircraft that ran out of fuel is safe after ditching his aircraft 253 miles northeast of Maui, Hawaii.

This is a video of a Rans-7 acrobatic aircraft that had its wing break off during an airshow in Argentina on Sunday, August 15th, 2010.

Best Duct Tape Story EVER!!

During a private fly-in fishing excursion into the
Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen
left a cooler full of bait in the plane.
A bear smelled it, and this is what the bear did to the plane…

The pilot used his radio and had another pilot
bring him two new tires, three cases of duct tape,
and a supply of sheet plastic. He then patched
the plane together, and FLEW IT HOME!
