Mr. Montalte states the decision to add an this new location was due to overwhelming demand from clients in that part of the country and the fact the Company continues to exceed its corporate and financial goals.

"We’re seeing a number of positive indications that our clients are turning more to the latest Avionics and increasingly insist upon actual training without the use of our simulators. We believe there is no substitute for actual. The antiquated technology of "Portable Simulators" used by some training organizations, reinforces our core belief that actual flying conditions cannot be replicated. We understand the cost of flying continues to increase, however, savings realized using a portable simulator simply cannot compete with actual flying time under ATC control.
