River Hawk Aviation Subsidiary Adds Aircraft to Its Aviation Management Program

TRAVERSE CITY, MI--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - River Hawk Aviation, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RHWI) ("River Hawk" or the "Company") announced this morning that it has reached agreement with its aviation partner Aerologistics Investment Partners, LLC (Aerologistics), to provide aviation management services for a Cessna Citation II that it is acquiring. The management services are to be provided through Profile Aviation Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Cessna Citation II is a very popular corporate aircraft configured with seating for 8 passengers. The aircraft is expected to be placed under management on approximately February 1, 2008.

Aerologistics is a related party to River Hawk Aviation, Inc.

Aerologistics indicated that it intends to operate the Cessna Citation a minimum of 400 hours during 2008 and that it has already obtained a commitment of 75 hours of flying time from the previous owner of the aircraft.

Calvin Humphrey, River Hawk's Chief Executive Officer and a managing member of Aerologistics, stated, "We believe that the Cessna Citation is an excellent complement to our owned and managed fleet currently under the control of our Profile subsidiaries. Our studies indicate strong market support for this equipment. Our evolving plan is to continue to adjust the mix of our equipment offerings to maximize our marketing efforts and meet the growing demands of the greater Hickory, North Carolina marketplace. As part of our plan we are also conducting internal studies to determine the feasibility of bringing small jet service to the airport facility in Hickory. We approach 2008 with very high optimism and believe the addition of the Citation will prove to be a nice kick-off towards an outstanding year."
