Flight Safety Technologies, Inc. Completes Initial Aircraft Wake Safety Management (AWSM) Milestone.

MYSTIC, Conn. -- Flight Safety Technologies, Inc (AMEX: FLT) announced that on February 28, 2007 it had achieved an important milestone in demonstrating the initial functional emulation of the Aircraft Wake Safety Management (AWSM) system. The demonstration of this functional emulation, based on aircraft arrivals previously recorded using SOCRATES and LIDAR sensors at the Denver International Airport test site, was delivered at the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In attendance were Volpe DOT, as well as Company representatives. The development effort was accomplished under U.S. Government funding and supplemented by Company capital funds.

Although the Company believes that this demonstration represents a major step forward, there is no assurance as to whether or when the Company will proceed with a live emulation of the AWSM system and no public or private funding has yet been identified for any U.S. or international airport implementation. The Company expects that, following further presentations to FAA and other government officials, a summary of the demonstration will be made available through a link in the Company's website in the near future.
