CAPS

Dick DeBartolo, The Giz Wiz

Episode 1125

Dickie D's gadget this week is a rocket fired parachute system that can be deployed during an emergency on a private plane and bring the plane down safely so it won't crash. The system is called CAPS (Cirus Airframe Parachute System). It's part of the Cirrus turbocharged SR22T aircraft. 95 lives have been saved since the system was introduced.
