CompleteLearning™ Avionics Software Library Targets Pilot and Technician Training

AEA-Member Shops Cleared Direct to KEFS ElectronicFlight Solutions CompleteLearning™ Airpark

Palm Springs, California April 25, 2002 - AEA President Paula Derks and ElectronicFlight Solutions, Inc. founder and CEO, Howard Reisman, today officially cut the ribbon and opened the ElectronicFlight Solutions Airpark at the Aircraft Electronics Association 45th Annual Convention & Trade Show here in Palm Springs.

"AEA welcomes ElectronicFlight Solutions as an AEA member and applauds their efforts to bring quality training to the flying community as well as to our membership", stated Derks.

Today, general aviation aircraft owners are investing tens of thousands of dollars on high tech equipment but leave the shop with minimal training and a set of manuals they are expected to decipher on their own. The result, more often than not, is that the pilot never becomes fluent in the full and proper use of the equipment.

"As an AEA-Member CompleteLearning™ Partner you can now offer your customers as well as your in-house technicians access to the ElectronicFlight CompleteLearning™ Avionics Software Library of interactive, media rich, self paced training. The five volume library addresses Autopilot, GPS Navigation, Traffic, Terrain and Weather awareness technologies from leading manufacturers including Bendix/King, Garmin, Goodrich and Avidyne." explains Paul Novacek, ElectronicFlight's VP of Product Development and member of the AEA Avionics Advisory Board.

According to Arthur T. Keefe III of the Air Safety Foundation, "Today's sophisticated cockpit automation technology is fusing itself into the very fabric of General Aviation at an exponential rate. Competency in its use will result in peace of mind and safer flying."

Founder Howard Reisman emphasizes, "As CompleteLearning™ Partners we strive to ensure that NO pilot leaves the shop without the quality training they deserve. More importantly, it is training they need to be proficient with the equipment you, the avionics shop, have installed and when it counts the most - under the pressure of a high workload cockpit environment."

To better educate the GA community about its products and partnerships the company has launched the ElectronicFlight Solutions CompleteLearning™ Airpark (KEFS), home to the ElectronicFlight CompleteLearning™ Academy and Testing Center, AEA-member Avionics Shop, ElectronicFlight FBO and Pilot Shop, ElectronicFlight School and Corporate Flight Department. AEA-member shops can be cleared directly to KEFS by accessing or calling toll free 866-234-2359 and ordering a CompleteLearning Airpark /AEA-Member Partner Program CD-ROM.

ElectronicFlight Solutions, Inc. is a new and innovative organization that offers the ElectronicFlight CompleteLearning™ Software Library of Avionics/Cockpit Automation training products to general aviation and corporate pilots, engineers, and technicians. Working in conjunction with AEA-member avionics shops, flight instructors and flight schools on a national basis, ElectronicFlight Solutions provides a library of interactive media rich training software addressing Autopilot, GPS Navigation, Traffic, Terrain and Weather Awareness technologies from leading manufacturers.
