Ballistic Chutes are still saving planes

Tyler was able to call a county deputy on his cellphone, and
reported that the plane had crashed into a heavily wooded area on a steep
mountainside — but that he and his wife had managed to deploy the plane’s
built-in parachute beforehand, the release said.

“(The pilot) said something to the effect to me that he knew he was not
stalling, yet he followed protocols and made a split-second decision whether to
activate the parachute and he did. I imagine that was because he could not see
anything out the window,” Steindler said, referring to the day’s snowy weather.

Steindler further explained that the plane itself has a parachute mounted on a
“small rocket” that shoots up when activated and deploys the 'chute, allowing the
plane to float to the ground more safely.
