FAA Awards STC to BJAC Services for its BJAC PilotsEdge™ Electronic Flight Bag, by Goodrich

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 24, 2008) - FAA awards STC for BJAC PilotsEdge(TM) EFB. BJAC is pleased to announce that, in addition to its Canadian STC received last fall, it has received Supplemental Type Certification STC from the FAA for its BJAC PilotsEdge(TM) EFB Electronic Flight Bag, by Goodrich, for the Bombardier Global aircraft platform. Several installations of this new innovative EFB are underway, and our Customer list is growing. Installations are currently being designed for the Bombardier Challenger series aircraft, as well as other OEM aircraft types.

This EFB system is a cost-effective solution to a paperless cockpit, an open design that seamlessly integrates with various communications systems and easily supports future expansion, able to support all of your present and future operational and corporate data and information requirements.

It is a Class 3 EFB from a hardware perspective, built to commercial airline avionics standards, tested to DO-160E, capable of running many different Type A and B software applications from its BJAC's "One-Touch" Menu Page on a robust and reliable Windows XP platform. It also features ARINC 429 and MIL-1553 communications integrated into the Computer Module for reading pertinent data from the aircraft and uploading to the EFB applications, and an integrated video server capable of accepting up to eight video inputs. Several options are available, such as Electronic charts, battery back-up, wireless LAN access and satellite worldwide weather, to name a few.

"We teamed with Goodrich because of the simplicity of their EFB's pilot-to-aircraft interface," said Bryan Landry, President, Business Jet Aircraft Completions. BJAC's engineered installation accomplished under a Supplemental Type Certificate allows hard-mounted EFBs to meet and/or exceed client expectations. This is a momentous occasion and a significant milestone in BJAC's history, we are justifiably proud of our accomplishments and we would like to share this exciting moment with our clients.
