That's the concept behind the full-airframe parachutes for the general aviation market manufactured by BRS Aviation. Prior to 1975, few had attempted to implement the idea to design a parachute for an aircraft, even though it had been talked about for nearly a century. In that year, Boris Popov of Saint Paul, Minnesota, survived a 400-foot fall in a collapsed hang glider.

The father-son duo of Babar Suleman and 17-year-old Haris Suleman of Plainfield Indiana had planned their trip around the world in 30 days in a Beechcraft model 36 Bonanza to be an adventure of a lifetime, and to raise funds to support schools in Pakistan.
