FlyingMonkey Posted November 1, 2012 Report Share Posted November 1, 2012 I have always wondered...what was FD thinking when they placed the BRS handle? The position seems the absolute worst for getting to and actually deploying the chute. You have to reach around behind you, and then pull at a very awkward and unnatural angle with sufficient force to trigger the system. :wacko: I understand it makes the cable run to the system short, but seriously, does that really compensate for the clear disadvantages? Has anybody (I guess you'd need an ELSA airworthiness cert) put this someplace better? Even just running it to roughly the same location in the rear, but coming down through the ceiling so that the pull is downward instead of outward, would be a great improvement, it seems to me. Just musing... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
