fastest growing and third leading provider of flight training equipment in the
world, today announced successful In-Plant Acceptance (IPA) for the B737NG
FFS X(TM) being built for the Gozen Group. The B737NG FFS X(TM) is being
installed for deployment and commissioning at the aviation group's new flight
training center, the IFTC, in Istanbul, Turkey. Final qualification of the
simulator will be performed under JAA and is to happen shortly in the next few
    "We are very pleased that Mechtronix' FFS X(TM) has met the important
performance standards we set forth and are looking forward to the unit's
timely delivery and use at our new state of the art facility", said Mr. Mekin
Gozen, President & CEO of Gozen Group. "I am confident that this and other
Mechtronix flight simulators in production will provide the solid foundation
for our new training center and provide the economy, safety, reliability,
fidelity and quality we need to be a world class airline."
    "We are very pleased to have accomplished this important milestone in our
relationship with Gozen and look forward to this unit's final deployment and
that of others in the New Year", said Xavier Hervé, President of Mechtronix.

grasp of the market and its unique capabilities as a world leader in providing
high quality and economical flight training technology to flexible and dynamic
airlines like the Gozen Group that will no longer settle for yesterday's
technology today."
    The Turkish service group's new FFS X(TM) will offer to pilots the
ability to perform 100% of their initial and recurrent training more
economically at its home training center with substantial cost savings and
added productivity. The FFS X(TM) is the new generation simulation
architecture making it much easier and less costly to own and operate compared
to the "classic" old generation simulators. The FFS X(TM) architecture is all
about "true high fidelity" simulation utilizing OEM data for "100%
replication", maximizing the use of OEM software for simulated displays and
avionics hence significantly reducing and eliminating hardware.
