METAL-MASTER Company started tests of innovative FLARIS RESCUE SYSTEM®
FLARIS RESCUE SYSTEM® has been designed by engineers of Metal-Master. It consists of the following systems:
• parachute safety system for the whole aircraft
• air-bag safety system for the whole aircraft
The FFAS® Rescue System is designed to assure safety for pilot and passengers of the aircraft in the case of emergency. The plane will drop gently on the parachute and air-bags will protect the fuselage in a moment of contact with ground or water avoiding a damage. Actually, all elements and subsystems, such as control mechanisms, parachute housing in the aft fuselage, small rocket deploying the canopy, are tested.
The FFAS® Rescue System has been successfully integrated with the Flaris Flight Assistance System (FFAS®) , which is the Metal-Master avionics system responsible for navigation, flight control, autopilot, weather and situation awareness, works with the ECU and WILLIAMS FJ33-5A engine.
