IWG receives approval for water treatment unit installation on Embraer Legacy 600/650 Aircraft

BURNABY, BC, Oct. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - IWG Technologies Inc., through its subsidiary, International Water-Guard Industries, is pleased to announce the issuance of ANAC Supplement Type Certificate CST No. 2012S09-08 for the installation of the IWG-A4 potable water treatment unit on Embraer Legacy 600 and Legacy 650 aircraft.

"Achieving certification of the IWG-A4 on Embraer aircraft is an important milestone for both IWG and Embraer," said Bruce MacCoubrey, IWG's President. "For us, this is a continuation of our formal relationship with an important and growing airframe manufacturer. For Embraer, this introduces IWG's ultraviolet technology into the Embraer business jet fleet."

The IWG-A4 certification opens the market for IWG to offer its unit on Embraer's growing Legacy 600/650 fleet. Existing Legacy owners registered with Brazil's ANAC can also take advantage of this new offering. Current plans to obtain certification validation with the FAA and EASA would open the Legacy market further.

The installation was designed by International Water-Guard and our Brazilian partner Avionics Services of Sao Paulo.  The CST kit may be ordered through Embraer Business Jets as well as International Water-Guard.

                (ANAC is Brazil's national civil aviation authority or Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil in Portuguese)
                (CST stands for Certificado Suplementar de Tipo, which is equivalent to the FAA/EASA's Supplement Type Certificate (STC))
