Rescuers who come to an aircraft accident scene are exposed to the possible activation of the rescue parachute system which has not been deployed. Although intended for life saving, the rescue parachute system may cause serious injury to fire fighters, rescuers, and bystanders when this rocket-powered system becomes damaged and is not activated following an accident. That is why we often train members of the integrated rescue system. On November 8, 2022, we participated in a training of the IRS at Kladno airport. There, in addition to training, we also performed a practical demonstration – a rescue system shot on the ground. A few photos from the event below.
On Thursday, July 7, a Magnum 601 rescue system was used near Prievidza in Slovakia. A steering failure occurred during a certification flight with a WT9 Dynamic 915is at a speed of almost 400 km/h. The airplane became uncontrollable. So the pilot decided to activate rescue system. The system worked correctly and brought the heavily damaged plane to the ground. The aircraft ended up upside down. The pilot escaped with only minor injuries.
We would like to inform you about company holiday from August 1, 2022 until August 12, 2022. Thank you for understanding.
We were pleased with the nice letter from a customer who was forced to use the Magnum 250 rescue system for his rescue. We are translating part of the letter below.
I just want to write you that the idea of buying a ballistic rescue system was a very good. There was a very loud bang after the system was activated, and the parachute opened in half a second. Then it went down slowly ... Because I was at a slight angle, only the front wheel was broken after landing. It was actually a very soft landing, I was expecting a slightly bigger impact. In retrospect, I can only recommend to every pilot - get a ballistic rescue system. This thing will save your bones.

We also regularly test older rescue systems to verify their functionality. Below is an example of recscue systém´s test. It is rescue system Magnum 250 -after its lifetime period and it was 7 years without a valid revision.
21.9.2017 shortly after 4 pm during the flight near the city Verl / Germany - The pilot realized that he had a problem with the engine. He decided to activate Magnum rescue system. The parachute with the airplane landed in the forest then. The crew (pilot and one passenger) were able to leave the airplane themselves before rescuers arrived.
We have carried out next test of rescue system for balloons (utility model application no. PUV 2017 - 33369), this time with a partially inflated balloon. The hot air balloon was taken up by using a helicopter and then launched at zero speed to the ground. Than the rescue system was activated. Tests passed successfully. We will be able to offer our customers this solution of rescue in case of emergency soon.
Please see pictures below. You can also see the video from the test here: https://youtu.be/DmrK4yr0TSw
We have carried out the first test of a new rescue system for balloons, Utility model application no. PUV 2017 - 33369.
The hot air balloon was taken up by using a helicopter and then launched at zero speed and at a height of 250 m above the ground. Than the rescue system was activated. Tests passed more successfully than we expected. We are now planning further testing and we will be able to offer our customers this solution of rescue in case of emergency soon.
A 29-year-old pilot, who flew from Gelnhausen to Aschaffenburg, got with his plane into bad weather conditions shortly after 20 hours.
The pilot decided to turn first and fly back to his airport. But according to the initial findings he got into the clouds and lost his orientation.
Then he activated the Magnum rescue system.
The aircraft landed without further complications in the field and the pilot was not injured.
As usual, this year we will participate in the exhibition AERO Friedrichshafen, which is held from 5th to 8th April.
We will be very pleased if you come visit us to our booth No. B2 – 201.
