Public Profile

Ballistic Recovery Systems, Inc is focused to design, manufacture and market emergency parachute recovery systems for use in the general aviation and recreational aircraft. These systems are designed to bring down the entire aircraft and its occupants under the parachute canopy in the event of an in-air emergency. Recreational aviation products include products designed and manufactured for use on unregistered aircraft such as ultralights and aircraft that registered with the Federal Aviation Administration as experimental. This unique, proprietary ballistic parachute system lowers aircraft to the ground in the event of an in-air emergency. Originally designed for lighter weight ultralights and homebuilt/experimental aircraft, BRS has now achieved the technological ability to develop parachute systems for conventional aircraft.
