Flight Track receives qualification for Mechtronix FNPT II MCC flight training device

        Austrian New Flight Training Organization is Now Ready to Support
               Pilot Provisioning for Airlines in Austria with
                         State-Of-The-Art Equipment

    MONTREAL, Feb. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Flight Track, an Austrian Flight
Training Organization, has obtained dual qualification JAR-STD 3A FNPT II &
MCC for a reconfigurable Synthetic Training Device manufactured by Mechtronix
Systems Inc. (MSI), the fast growing global provider of flight training
equipment. The flight training device is configured as a B200 reconfigurable
to Seneca 5, allowing 40 hours of credit for IR training and 15 hours for MCC.
    "We have carefully analyzed the products available on the market and
found Mechtronix' offer to be the best to match our requirements," commented
Thomas Steininger, CEO and Head of Training at Flight Track. The Mechtronix
FNPT II MCC device is flexible and to the highest standards as it uses the
same image generator as a Full Flight Simulator."
    This is a flexible solution that qualifies under both FNPT II and MCC
requirements, and allows Flight Track to provide IR and MCC training within
modular and integrated CPL and PPL. It includes Garmin 430 and panoramic
cylindrical screen as well as a high resolution level D quality Salzburg
airport visual database. The flight trainer was chosen after an extensive
selection process based on competitive prices, high quality and fast delivery
delays; Flight Track selected Mechtronix to supply its first trainer that
represents a key asset at the core of its business operations.
    This sale has confirmed and reinforced Mechtronix' position in the
European FTO market, as it has been part of a long series of successful sales
of MCC machines on the continent. "Following Flight Track's adoption of the
JAA regulations, Austria's demand for pilots has never been so high and we are
delighted to be part of this development" said Xavier Hervé, President of
Mechtronix Systems Inc. With our established leadership in the European
market, we take pride that we have become the leading provider for Flight
Training Organizations."
