N969PZ Experimental Genesis pulls BRS Chute...


News Story
FAA Preliminary Report and N969PZ FAA Registry

“The aircraft rolled over on its back and headed straight down,” said pilot Patrick Dean. He immediately deployed the BRS parachute just a few hundred feet above the ground. The aircraft landed in the trees and Dean was helped from the cockpit by witnesses. He suffered a cut on his nose and minor bumps and bruises.


Interesting News Story. It claims a possible control surface malfunction, but the prelim report says engine failure. Sounds more like a stall spin.

Also the article touts 208 lives saved by the BRS, but I wonder how many of the deployments would have resulted in an uneventful safe landing had the chute not been available?
