Ballistic Recovery System

The BRS in my CTSW is due this summer for the 12 year replacement.  Any hints or suggestions will be appreciated.  I am sure this has been done by others so your story will be insightful.  Did the 6 year repack with little inconvenience, plane was down for about 2 weeks.  Big question, what happens to the old ballistic -rocket -?  Can't imagine that it is shipped back to BRS.

Yes the old rocket can be fired.  You get a completely new rocket including the canister for it and igniter system. They come in separate boxes. It is considered HazMat ground shipping only. The rocket is quite powerful and can travel a long distance so be careful if you mess with it and don't get hurt or hurt someone else. It takes no prisoners.

The JATO mod might require a LOA but would be handy when trying to clear the Rockies on the next Page trip.

 

Here's the engine from the Sonex Jet, 292lb thrust, enough to pust the Sonex to 250mph:

Mount it on the belly between the mains and put big Jet-A fuel bladders in the baggage bays...  :D
