An Aviation Accident in Danbury, Connecticut, earlier this week highlighted a newer feature many small aircraft are equipped with to improve safety. WTNH 8 News discussed how the equipment was single-handedly responsible for saving the lives of three people who were on the aircraft when it went down.
On Tuesday afternoon at around 7:30 p.m., a flight instructor had taken a student and a friend into the air for a lesson. As they began their descent toward the Danbury Airport though, the pilot began to experience trouble with one of the Cirrus SR20’s engines. When the pilot was around two miles from his landing site, he realized a crash was imminent and began procedures to crash land; however, crash landing in this plane was a bit different.
The aircraft was equipped with a 70-foot in diameter parachute. When the pilot felt threatened, he was able to activate the chute, which is then deployed by a small rocket. The parachute successfully brought the plane to the earth near South Street in Danbury and all three passengers were able to escape the wreckage on their own. They were treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and were later released.
