training organization, selects Mechtronix to provide a Flight Training Device
(FTD) configured as a twin turboprop featuring Beechcraft King Air class
aircraft with a conversion kit to multi engine piston aircraft Beech Baron 58.
Cargair's major investment will significantly contribute to their global
business development strategy. The device is scheduled to be delivered in
February 2008 and they will be looking to obtain Level 5 certification by
Transport Canada.
    Cargair's recent successes, based on their vision & leadership on the
flight training market, found in Mechtronix a product offer that would
positively contribute to their continuous growth. The device will be used for
IR, CRM and MCC training for the local and international cadet programs.
Mechtronix strong presence in China and its honorable relationship with the
CAAC were amongst the factors considered by the Canadian flight training
organization in its purchase decision.

capacity. The FTD will feature real time visual software supplied by Redifun
Simulation Inc. (RFI), offering superior resolution and light point
brightness. This RASTERflight(TM) image generator is a unique component of the
visual system that provides locally generated weather, moving models and
special effects bringing FFS visual quality to the FTD world. "Mechtronix' FTD
will enable us to improve training while saving costs. Furthermore, their long
series of successes worldwide puts us in great trust with the quality and
fidelity of their devices," commented Cargair's President Mrs. Josée
Prud'homme.

leading provider of flight training devices on the Canadian market. As one of
the key benefits, our FTD will enable them to improve efficiency of training
in high performing aircrafts which are part of the Cargair CAAC-approved
training footprint," indicated Mr. Xavier Hervé, President of Mechtronix. "We
endeavor working with highly successful FTO's like Cargair and look forward to
