Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
Today Flight Deck Gaming (http://www.flightdeckgaming.com) announced the launch of its business, which provides gaming solutions to the transit industry.
The Los Angeles, California based company will utilize a diverse portfolio of gaming applications to deliver custom gaming solutions to its partners who come from the various sectors of the transit industry including airlines, cruise, resorts and rail.
Although Flight Deck Gaming's solution set supports the entire transit industry, the company's initial focus is the aviation industry and its more than 4 billion annual passengers.
"Maximizing the entertainment experience of its passengers is an area of increasing importance to the airline industry," stated Howard E. Woods, Flight Deck Gaming's Founder and Managing Partner. "In addition, with the industry expecting to lose over $9 billion in 2009 alone, our industry partners have expressed a strong interest in the ancillary revenue associated with our unique gaming solutions."
According to statistical research firm GrabStats (http://www.grabstats.com), online gaming revenue will exceed $20 billion by 2012 and according to In-Stat Research, the revenue generated from WiFi enabled devices will exceed $1 billion by 2012. These facts coupled with what has been described as the long "captured audience" nature of most transit passengers, has created an attractive environment through which transit providers hope to exploit the commercial potential of gaming.
A decorated fighter pilot, Woods brings more than 20 years of diverse aviation related management and consulting experience to Flight Deck Gaming. The list of organizations that have utilized Woods' skill set include the US Navy, Boeing, Air France, Delta and American Airlines.
Woods has been joined at the company by Justin F. Beckett, a 10 year Internet gaming and entertainment Executive, who has developed related solutions for a partner list which includes MySpace, Microsoft, Sony, American Idol and AOL.
