Pipistrel virus deploys 'chute for save


Recommended Posts

In hindsight we all get to say "well, of course in THAT circumstance a chute makes sense!" But for that pilot, it was just another normal flight, until everything went sideways (especially the wings!).


This is what I don't get about pilots that denigrate having a BRS system as "too heavy" or "too expensive" or that "a real pilot tries to land the airplane". I'm sure if you asked that pilot what his BRS was worth, the answer would be "anything I have."


Nobody expects to use emergency equipment, which makes it easy to delete or not keep up to date. But like a good fire extinguisher, it's just extra weight until the flames start licking at your feet...
