WHAT MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED?
Three maintenance cycles are important. Costs are not yet certain for the BRS-172, but based on experience with the Cessna 150 and Cirrus SR20 we can estimate some costs.
Firstly, the unit must have an Annual Inspection, just like the rest of the airplane.
Secondly, the parachute must be repacked every ten years. This work must be done by BRS (primarily due to the machine pressure packing of the canopy). The parachute and all lines will be removed and thoroughly inspected. If no additional work is required, this may cost about $2000.
Thirdly, every ten years the rocket must be replaced at an estimated cost of $1000.
If the parachute system or its components are subjected to any unusual stress or exposure (physical damage or contamination), additional charges may apply.
Please note all prices are quoted in 1999 dollars and are subject to change without prior notice.
