Hilton Software LLC Introduces Its New WingX Browser™; a Free Aviation Weather and Internet Communications Portal

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 27, 2005 -- Hilton Software LLC announces the release of WingX Browser™ for the Pocket PC. Adding to its extremely successful WingX™ for the Pocket PC product, Hilton Software LLC has combined its experience in .NET technology with its advanced Internet communication and data compression algorithms to provide pilots with super-fast weather updates on a state-wide or nation-wide basis. Pilots simply choose one or more states to download and within seconds, they will have instant access to all METARs, TAFs, as well as winds and temperatures aloft for the selected states. In addition, WingX Browser graphically displays all-important trend information.

According to Dr. Hilton Goldstein, the company CEO: "Weather has the highest lethality index of all accident causes in the latest AOPA Air Safety Foundation Nall Report. Hilton Software has always been about providing pilots with software to make flying safer. Enabling pilots to obtain accurate real-time and meaningful weather information is a large step forward in lowering weather-related and fuel-exhaustion accident rates."

Obtaining weather information on a desktop computer before leaving the house is a good first step in pre-flight planning, but that weather information is often incorrect by the time the pilot arrives at the airport. Having intelligent weather right on a handheld Pocket PC running WingX Browser™ is tremendous for pilots who are not always at their home desktop to get the latest weather.

WingX Browser™ Auto-Update technology allows pilots to update their software to the latest version wirelessly at an airport or even on the airport ramp. WingX Browser™ will even benefit pilots who have non-wireless Pocket PCs; the weather information will be stored and displayed when required.

WingX Browser™ is available now for free on the company website at www.hiltonsoftware.com. For additional information about Hilton Software LLC, please contact Dr. Hilton Goldstein at 408-323-8057, hilton@hiltonsoftware.com.
