If the engine quits between 800 and 2000 feet AGL, pull the BRS parachute.
If the engine quits above 2000 feet AGL, I have a good chance of turning and gliding to the airport for a normal landing.
Do you modify this at all based on the situation, or is it hard & fast rules to make sure you do the right thing when in a chaotic moment?
I'd have a hard time pulling the chute when at 900 ft above fields or grasslands, and if I was at 1600ft and anywhere near an airport, I'd probably be looking to get back in there.
