Welcome to the March Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News!

In January, a pilot in a Cirrus SR22 ran out of fuel and ditched into the Pacific Ocean off Hawaii. His life was saved in large part thanks to the Cirrus’ parachute. In this issue, we discuss the pros and cons of small aircraft parachutes, plus keep you up to date with the latest FAA news and updates.

Have a question about cold weather flying or storage? Give Business Aircraft Center a call at (203) 748-7000 or visit our Private Aircraft Services page.

As always, we hope that you find this issue informative and helpful, and we ask that you please forward it to a friend or colleague in aviation.

Safe flying!
