Airplane Salesman Deploys Parachute on Demo Flight

by Murphy

There's one feature Cirrus Aircraft sales people talk about a lot but had never demonstrated until Saturday when an Australian rep had to use it while on a demo flight. The feature is a BUILT IN PARACHUTE. Peter Edwards and his potential customers took off for a flight over Australia's Blue Mountains, just outside of Sydney, when something went wrong. Edwards pulled the handle and the parachute system worked as it is supposed to. None of the three men was injured.
