 BALLISTIC RECOVERY SYSTEMS' 'GARD' PROJECT PASSES CRUCIAL FAA TEST
 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Ballistic Recovery Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BRSI) announced today that its General Aviation Recovery Device (GARD) recently passed a Federal Aviation Administration non- flying test, a crucial step towards certification of GARD. The test, which was witnessed by an FAA designated engineer representative, showed that GARD was in full compliance with all FAA regulations.
 Boris Popov, chairman of the board, stated, "As a result of surpassing this important benchmark, we have moved on to Phase 2 and 3 of FAA testing. We anticipate receiving FAA certification of GARD during fall 1992."
 The company's GARD product is based upon proprietary rocket- deployed, parachute recovery technology which is designed to recover aircraft under catastrophic airborne conditions. The technology is intended to be used with general aviation aircraft, the first of which will be the Cessna 150/152 series. There are nearly 170,000 registered, single engine general aviation aircraft in the United States.
 Ballistic Recovery Systems, Inc. currently markets its rocket technology to approximately 25,000 non-FAA certified aircraft in the United States. To date, BRS has sold nearly 8,500 devices worldwide and saved 54 lives.
