As Bye Aerospace continues its never-ending march toward the certification of its Part 23 eFlyer 2 trainer, Bye Aerospace CEO George E. Bye this week announced in a news release that the company had chosen Aviation Safety Resources, Inc., (ASR) to “design, prototype, test and deliver a recovery system specifically for the eFlyer 2.” ASR will use its Soteria line of whole aircraft recovery parachutes systems for the eFlyer 2.
Larry Williams, ASR president and CEO said, “ASR’s patented technology and enhanced design provide space saving opportunities and reduced weight compared to traditional systems. In addition, Soteria uses high-tech materials that extend repack cycles, reducing overall operating costs over the life of the aircraft.”
Bye Aerospace’s current and future families of aircraft feature unique engineering, research, and electric aircraft solutions producing no CO<sub>2</sub>, and they are designed to answer compelling market needs. These critical market needs include five-fold lower operating costs, zero emissions, and decreased noise. Bye Aerospace estimates the eFlyer will eliminate the release of millions of metric tons of CO<sub>2</sub> each year for pilot training.
