The Evolution Airframe Kit will include a Ballistic Recovery Parachute System by BRS Aerospace
Lancair is very pleased to announce that, beginning with Evolution aircraft kits ordered after July 18, 2015, the Evolution Airframe Kit will include a Ballistic Recovery Parachute System by BRS Aerospace. This recovery system is specifically designed for aircraft in the weight and performance class of the Evolution and will be included as standard equipment for the Evolution. As an option, it may be deleted for those that do not wish to avail themselves of this exciting and precedent setting development for the Single Engine Turboprop class of aircraft. The system, known by Lancair as Evolution Emergency Airframe Parachute System EEAPS , will provide that extra level of safety for a pilot and his passengers should they come to realize that the pilot is incapacitated or the aircraft is severely damaged, uncontrollable, or otherwise incapable of further flight. The BRS system has proven to be a life saver in various situations with 324 documented lives saved to date, during flights that would have otherwise ended tragically. The Evolution, as originally conceived was to include this system but, until recently, the required parachute had not been available. Lancair welcomes BRS Aerospace recent ASTM qualification of a new and innovative parachute system with state of the art technology that allows installation on aircraft in the weight class of the Lancair Evolution with significantly less weight and volume than previous systems currently in the market. As a result, Lancair and BRS Aerospace teamed together their 35 years of safety in aviation to develop a joint project aimed at designing a state of the art integration of the system into the Evolution airframe. Lancair is proud to be affiliated with BRS and their extraordinary lifesaving technology.
The 2015.5 introductory price of the Evolution Airframe kit including the EEAPS is $630,000 .
