Default Cost$$$

The cost of maintaining the Cirrus BRS system is substantial. It's not something you install once and have at the ready for the lifetime of the airframe.

Default Cost $$$

The latest (June) issue of kit planes has a article on installation in a 9a the price is not mentioned. The cost of repack on the chute every 6 years and the cost of rocket every 12 years is $1000 each. Not bad compared to the every 5 year AD on my Bonanza Harrtzell prop. Not sure this link will be available to everyone.

Just do not tell my wife I have already gone over budget on this project.

Default BRS Chute Installation for RV10

Update: BRS is now shipping the RV10 install hardware. I received it last week with a PDF of the manual. The chute and rocket should be shipping in the next couple of weeks.

Default Not interested any more.

I was excited too until I saw some pictures of the installation. The chute fires horizontally from the fuselage just aft of the rear bulkhead. The straps are wrapped around the exterior of the aircraft with covers. I thought it was unattractive and looked like a lot of drag.
