Forget Video Games: Learn to Fly a Real Airplane – On Line!

Author: Sporty's Pilot Shop
Dateline: Mon, 14 Jul 2008

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BATAVIA, Ohio, July 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- 'Ever thought about flying your own airplane?' asks Sporty's Pilot Shop. When you walk by the cockpit when you're boarding an airline flight, do you ever look inside the cockpit and wonder what all those buttons, screens and controls do? Some people look at pilots walking through airports and feel that they are a cut above everyone else.”



A R T I C L E:

BATAVIA, Ohio, July 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "Ever thought about flying your own airplane?" asks Sporty's Pilot Shop. When you walk by the cockpit when you're boarding an airline flight, do you ever look inside the cockpit and wonder what all those buttons, screens and controls do? Some people look at pilots walking through airports and feel that they are a cut above everyone else. Maybe you've thought that you have to be some sort of genius to fly an airplane, but the truth is people just like you learn to fly their own airplanes every day.

Learn to fly an airplane onlineSporty's Pilot Shop, the world's largest supplier of aviation educational products and pilot supplies, has put you one step closer to flying with their new online flight training courses.

"You get everything in our Complete Pilot Courses, plus some," says Sporty's Academy President Eric Radtke. "Along with the award-winning video, you get interactive test preparation, an interactive maneuvers section, an online training syllabus, and the entire Federal Aviation Administration Practical Test Standards."

In order to become a pilot, three tests are required, very similar to getting your driver's license. First you must pass a written test, then an oral test, and then a flight test. A flight test, called a "check ride," is just like the road test you took when you got your driver's license, but this one takes place in an airplane. If you learn to fly with any of Sporty's courses, Sporty's offers you a Triple Guarantee. Sporty's guarantees that if you fail any of your three tests, the company will refund your money. You can't lose!

Sporty's Pilot Shop makes learning to fly at home easy, and you can do it at your own pace, with their course which guides you step by step. You don't even have to wait until you pass the written test to start your actual flight lessons. Visit any airport with a flight school, and you can start lessons instantly. That means you could be at the controls of an airplane, flying over your own neighborhood, tomorrow.

You may be thinking that learning to fly is too expensive and out of reach of the average person. What you may now know, however, is that most flight schools allow you to pay as you go so there's no large, out-of-pocket expense up front. There are also financing programs available.

Sporty's Pilot Shop is determined to share the joys of flying with as many people as possible. Picture yourself flying to a ski resort for the weekend or to cut out those long drives when you visit family and friends. If you enjoy fishing, being a pilot gives you access to many remote locations only reachable by air. Or you may be thinking of a career in aviation, as an airline pilot, a medevac pilot or a corporate pilot.

For people who are just learning to fly, you have a choice of pilot license. You can be a recreational pilot or a private pilot. For a description and comparison of each, visit Sporty's learn-to-fly Web site at www.learntoflyhere.com.

Whatever your reason for learning to fly - even if the reason is "because I always wanted to" - Sporty's will help you take the first step. The Recreational Pilot Course and the Transition to Private Pilot are each available for $99; the Private Pilot Course is available for $199, and the Instrument Rating Course is available for $249. Multi-user licensing is available to flight schools. All Sporty's products may be ordered at www.sportys.com or by calling Sporty's at 1.800.SPORTYS.

Columbus Regional Airport Authority Enhances Emergency Communications

Author: Leader Technologies Incorporated
Dateline: Fri, 06 Jun 2008

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 6 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Columbus Regional Airport Authority (CRAA) announced today it will use Westerville-based Leader Technologies' patented Leader Alert(R) system to enhance airport security and make possible the simultaneous alerting of all key personnel in case of an emergency.”

Westerville-based Leader Technologies(R) will provide its patented Leader Alert(R) system

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 6 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Columbus Regional Airport Authority (CRAA) announced today it will use Westerville-based Leader Technologies' patented Leader Alert(R) system to enhance airport security and make possible the simultaneous alerting of all key personnel in case of an emergency.

Leader AlertAccording to Public Safety Director Richard Morgan, the Airport Authority saw Leader Alert's unique alerting capabilities as a key component in meeting the security needs for Port Columbus, Rickenbacker and Bolton Field airports. CRAA conducted months of testing in various conditions and security scenarios before making its decision.

"Leader Alert gives us the ability to simultaneously alert key personnel at the airport - as many or as few as we need - with the vital information that they need to handle any kind of crisis, from an aircraft incident to a security threat," said Morgan. "We will be able to alert using any kind of messaging system: landlines or cell phones, texting, even instant messaging, which will give our people a jump on the situation."

Using a technology that Leader has patented, Leader Alert can be deployed by a single individual to send a recorded message to hundreds of people simultaneously, using all current forms of messaging technology.

Leader Chairman Mike McKibben sees the use of Leader Alert at airports as a natural choice, given that its current users are schools and colleges, harbors and police forces, and state governments and agencies such as the Ohio Emergency Management Agency.

Before Hurricane Katrina struck, Pass Christian Harbor successfully used Leader Alert to alert people to get their vessels to safety, while another Leader product, Leader Phone(R), was quickly deployed by the Louisiana state government to coordinate relief efforts following the crippling of the state's systems by the storm. Already this year, the Parma School system has reassured worried parents via Leader Alert after an armed assailant was detained as she tried to enter the school.

According to McKibben, "These kinds of situations have shown us how vital it is for first responders to get the right information quickly in order to handle situations, keep people out of harm's way, and save lives."

Leader Technologies Incorporated is located in Westerville, Ohio and offers other communications and alerting products and may be reached at John Needham, (614) 890-l986 or online at www.leader.com.

The Columbus Regional Airport Authority operates Port Columbus, Rickenbacker and Bolton Field airports. For additional information, contact Angie Tabor, Manager of Communications, at (614) 239-4081 or at atabor@ColumbusAirports.com.

A R T I C L E:

GARLAND, Texas, May 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- DaveCo Industries recently received their second supplier award from Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. After initially being inducted into Preferred Supplier Program in 2003 at Silver status, Lockheed now recognizes DaveCo as a Gold status Preferred Supplier. Representatives from Lockheed visited DaveCo's facilities in Garland, TX and presented the award to the entire company.

This prestigious award comes on the heels of DaveCo's AS9100 registration, and the ensuing celebration was intended to commemorate both accomplishments. The Gold Supplier status requires a quality rating of 100% and on-time delivery of 100% for 24 straight months, and this accomplishment is not easily achieved in this challenging market.

DaveCo now has its sights set on the Platinum level, which requires an additional 12 months of 100% quality and delivery ratings.

Accepting the Gold status award for DaveCo was the president of the company Mark Helterbrand. "Our partnership with Lockheed has and will be a big part of our success. They continue to raise the bar on our performance and that is making us a better supplier to them and to our other customers as well," stated Helterbrand.

DaveCo is well-positioned for significant growth in the aerospace and defense markets in the coming months and years. This business segment has already increased in recent years and is targeted to become a much larger percentage of DaveCo's revenue base in 2009 and beyond.

Air Charter Association of North America Adopts Safety and Quality Assurance Program

Author: Air Charter Association of North America
Dateline: Mon, 05 May 2008

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOSTON, Mass., May 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Air Charter Association of North America (ACANA), a non-profit organization dedicated to recognizing and promoting the highest standards of ethics, integrity and professionalism in the air charter industry has announced that ACANA members now have the ability to utilize Wyvern/PASS.”



A R T I C L E:

BOSTON, Mass., May 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Air Charter Association of North America (ACANA), a non-profit organization dedicated to recognizing and promoting the highest standards of ethics, integrity and professionalism in the air charter industry has announced that ACANA members now have the ability to utilize Wyvern/PASS. This automated vendor management tool will allow the charter professionals of ACANA to continue to focus on full compliance and disclosure, assurance of operational control, safety and operator quality.

Caption: ACANAPASS, a trip specific report, enables ACANA members to verify that each flight that they arrange on behalf of a client conforms to the relevant legal requirements, including the all-important issue of operational control.

Additionally, ACANA members can determine that a proposed operator will utilize crew members with an appropriate level of crew experience, and that the operator is sufficiently insured.

The Safety Intelligence Report (SIR) capability allows users to access detailed, accurate and up-to-date information about charter operators, their fleets, pilots, insurance and accident/incident information to help the air charter professionals of ACANA make informed decisions about potential vendors.

Because information is gleaned directly from the FAA, members do not have to utilize third party vendor certification unless they choose to do so. Currently virtually all Part 135 operators can be researched utilizing SIR, and at the request of ACANA, Wyvern has added the majority of Part 121 operators.

"We are very pleased that our members now have access to PASS via Wyvern/CharterX. ACANA will continue to be at the forefront of our industry relative to establishing consistent standards and best practices in our industry. This initiative demonstrates our continued commitment to differentiating our membership in the marketplace from those entities that do not add value to our industry. We are confident that our efforts will also benefit the many quality vendors that our membership does business with," said Scott Bickford, Chairman of ACANA and CEO of Air Planning, LLC.

SATSair’s Air Cab Service Posts Significant Growth in 2007

Author: SATSair, LLC
Dateline: Thu, 01 May 2008

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “GREENVILLE, S.C., May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- SATSair, a provider of on-demand air cab services, is pleased to announce that the 2007 fiscal year which finished strong and marked significant growth and achievement for the company, continues in the 1Q 2008.”



A R T I C L E:

GREENVILLE, S.C., May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- SATSair, a provider of on-demand air cab services, is pleased to announce that the 2007 fiscal year which finished strong and marked significant growth and achievement for the company, continues in the 1Q 2008. SATSair experienced more than 60% growth in the number of flights from 2006 to 2007. The air cab operation flew more than 16,000 flights and landed in 27 states in 2007. SATSair ended the year with over six million passenger miles flown since the company's inception in November 2004.

Caption, SATSairThe most noteworthy year-to-year growth took place in Florida, which saw a 314% increase in flights over 2006. Though Florida showed the most notable growth, every state SATSair flew to in 2007 saw an increase in flights from the previous year, including considerable growth in the company's core six-state region.

SATSair's headquarters is located in South Carolina which had an average of 3 flights per day into all the major economic centers such as: Greenville / Anderson / Spartanburg, Charleston / Beaufort / Hilton Head, Columbia, and Myrtle Beach. Just as importantly, of 60 public use airports in South Carolina, SATSair landed in 47 of them, providing the start of an effective South Carolina Intrastate Air Network.

Traditionally, the use of the air cab service has been a remedy for driving trips of 2-5 hours, not a replacement for other forms of air travel. However, 2007 saw a shift with a significant number of new SATSair customers using the point-to-point air cab operation as a solution to their hub-and-spoke airline frustrations and woes, in fact decreasing the door to door travel times.

"We're extremely pleased with our 2007 and 1Q 2008 numbers and the growth they represent," said Steve Hanvey, SATSair CEO and President. "2007 was a landmark year for our innovative business concept. In 1Q 2008, we have seen that trend continue even with the broad economic concerns of today. This is our fourth year in business; we're continuing to refine our air cab model that provides economical personal travel for our growing customer base."

Nearly 90% of the company's business for 2007 was in a six-state region, comprised of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. SATSair currently serves more than 600 airports throughout the Southeast.

About SATSair
SATSair, Smart Air Travel Solutions, is the first company to offer the innovative air cab service based on extensive research and strategic relationships with agencies such as NASA and the FAA. Using new Cirrus SR22 aircraft, SATSair's mission is to provide safe, convenient, economical air travel and top-notch customer service.

In addition, the availability of Seaweed's DO-178B certifiable driver software (SeaWind/178(R)) for new Curtiss-Wright hardware platforms, that will be based upon graphics chips provided and supported by Seaweed, will enable Curtiss-Wright to better serve customers seeking compliance with both DO-178B and DO-254.

SeaWind is currently an X11R6/Motif 2.0-based implementation, and its X server and client-side products can connect over the backplane, over the network, and locally.

Seaweed Systems also offers the SeaWind/178 product family of DO-178B certifiable OpenGL subset APIs for applications that are safety or mission-critical in nature. The heart of this suite is the SeaWind/178 Core API, the first COTS offering compliant with the Khronos OpenGL SC 1.0 API for safety critical embedded applications.

GARLAND, Texas - Oct. 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- DaveCo Industries recently demonstrated its commitment to quality and continuous improvement by achieving certification to AS9100, which has been adopted as the quality standard for the Aerospace Industry. Shortly after the recent certification audit of DaveCo's management system and processes, the company received an audit score of 98.3. DaveCo is now officially certified to AS9100 and ISO 9001:2000.

Caption: DaveCoThe increased requirements of AS9100, which builds on ISO 9001:2000 elements, will benefit both DaveCo's defense and non-defense customers since the standard focuses on critical areas important to all industries such as supply chain management and process control.

DaveCo has focused on improving all processes for quality and efficiency gains, and the AS9100 push has been instrumental in making those efforts successful. The firm has also continued to implement Lean manufacturing techniques to meet the cost reduction requirements of its customers.

As the defense industry continues to push higher levels of production requirements down the supply chain, DaveCo is well-positioned to benefit from those opportunities from several prime defense contractors. The AS9100 implementation along with the continued Lean manufacturing push is helping DaveCo continue to be a leading supplier to the defense and other industries.

DaveCo Industries is a leading manufacturing services firm serving the aerospace, defense, energy, food and beverage, postal automation, semiconductor, transportation, and telecomm industries. The company provides precision fabrication and assembly services to the world's elite companies and is AS9100 and ISO 9001:2000 certified.
