Where You'll Find Our Product! Cirrus Aircraft CAPS® – FOR SAFER SKIES

Cirrus Aircraft
CAPS® – FOR SAFER SKIES

In the event of an in-flight emergency, pulling the red CAPS handle on the ceiling inside the cockpit deploys a solid-fuel rocket out a hatch that covers the concealed compartment where the parachute is stored. As the rocket carries the parachute rearward from the back of the airplane, the embedded CAPS airplane harness straps release from the fuselage. Within seconds, the 65′ diameter canopy will unfurl, controlling the aircraft rate of descent. The final landing is absorbed by the specialized landing gear, a roll cage and Cirrus Energy Absorbing Technology (CEAT™) seats.

Our Product In Action! Cirrus Airframe Parachute System™ (CAPS™) Successfully Deployed Over Pacific Ocean

On 25 January 2015, a pilot flying a Cirrus SR22 aircraft from the United States to Hawaii successfully deployed the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) over the Pacific Ocean approximately 250 miles from Hawaii. The whole-airframe parachute system, which is standard equipment on every Cirrus aircraft ever made, worked as designed and resulted in both the aircraft and pilot safely landing in the Pacific Ocean under the parachute canopy, where he was quickly retrieved by a passing ship with the assistance of the U.S. Coast Guard.
