Era to Sponsor Premier Environmental Symposium

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - February 28, 2008) - Era Corporation will serve as a key sponsor of next week's UC Symposium on Aviation Noise & Air Quality. Era's ongoing support for this event underscores the company's commitment to helping airports manage the increasingly important environmental issues such as noise and emissions.

The symposium, entitled, "Flying Green: A Thoroughbred Approach to Winning the Race for the Environment," will host over 300 attendees that represent all industry perspectives. While the umbrella focus is on noise and emissions, the symposium addresses issues such as regulations, policy, legal issues, communications and technology. The symposium will kick-off on Sunday, March 2nd with the 2nd Annual Golf Scramble, sponsored by Era and Brüel & Kjaer.

"We are excited to once again sponsor this important industry event," said Bill Colligan, Era's Vice President and General Manager, Airport Operations Solutions. "Era is committed to developing innovative solutions that help airports manage the environmental impact of increasing operations and remain good neighbors to their surrounding communities."

Era has been selected by numerous leading airports to deliver its suite of products, including recent selections by East Midlands in the U.K. and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) in the U.S., to cover Washington's Reagan and Dulles Airports.

The Symposium will be held March 2-5 in Palm Springs, CA.
