EAA AirVenture Seminar: Whole-airframe Ballistic Parachutes – Myths, Facts, and Strategies for Use

July 26, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Chad Friedrich – Manager, Flight Training at Cirrus Aircraft will be presenting at the AOPA Activity Tent on Sunday, 26 July during EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI.

Whole-airframe ballistic parachutes are great innovations for light aircraft that can dramatically improve safety, but pilots must possess the unique system knowledge and develop specific strategies for use during an emergency in order for the system to be truly effective. With more than 6,000 aircraft equipped with whole-airframe parachutes, Cirrus Aircraft has pioneered strategies for when and how to use these life-saving devices. The same strategies can and should be implemented for any parachute-equipped aircraft.
