BRS statement on recent NTSB Accident Report ERA16FA194: BRS Aerospace extends its sincere condolences to the families of two individuals who died in an accident May 24, 2016 when their parachute system failed them. The system, not manufactured by BRS, failed on the Jihlavan KP 5 ASA Skyleader 500 light sport aircraft, according to the NTSB accident report published September 6, 2017. BRS has not yet manufactured a whole aircraft parachute system specifically for the Skyleader 500. The result of this accident reinforces the wisdom of the exhaustive tests and rigorous design standards that BRS Aerospace applies to all of its whole aircraft parachute applications for certified, light sport and experimental aircraft.
