BRS to be Optional on Skycatcher

BRS to be Optional on Skycatcher

Ballistic Recovery Systems, Inc. (BRSI or BRSI.OB), a manufacturer of whole-airplane emergency parachute systems, announced today that Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, will offer a BRS system as an option in its new Light Sport Aircraft, the C-162 Skycatcher. This announcement further increases the list of aircraft manufacturers who have selected Ballistic Recovery Systems to provide a whole-airplane parachute system for their aircraft.

“We’ve been working with Cessna since the beginning on their remarkable new design and we are pleased that they see the value in having leading-edge safety features like the BRS system on board,” said Larry Williams, BRS Chief Executive Officer.

The new Cessna two-seater is filled with new technologies. It has a Garmin glass cockpit, gull wing doors, a new-styled control stick that takes up less space than a conventional yoke and now a BRS
parachute system which will bring the whole airplane safely back to earth in the event of an in-flight emergency. The BRS parachute will sit aft of the seats, modeling the current installations available
for the Cessna Skyhawk and Skylane models.
