Nobody ever wants to pull the CAPS handle, but knowing when and how to do it is a critical part of emergency training that has been very difficult to accomplish. That's why we partnered with BRS to build this highly accurate add-on from the exact same components used in the real aircraft, minus the explosives. Redbird CAPS is a must have for flight schools that operate a MCX, FMX, or SD to train pilots in aircraft equipped with a whole aircraft parachute, including the Cirrus SR20 and SR22. The Redbird CAPS add-on gives your customers the advantage to learn by doing. Not only can they practice the deployment procedures until it's second nature, you'll be able to put them in the difficult scenarios that require them to make the hard choice or experience the outcome. All in the safety of your Redbird.
While operators of Cirrus SR20 and SR22 are the most obvious benefactors of this training, the Redbird CAPS add-on works with any of our aircraft configurations. This allows you to offer training on whole aircraft parachute system operation for pilots with STC installations or create an aircraft agnostic course for your customers without needing to purchase a new aircraft configuration.
