NEDAB Appoints Jerry Airola to Its Nevada Economic Development Advisory Board

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 25, 2008) - The Nevada Economic Development Advisory Board (NEDAB) announced that it has appointed Jerry Airola, Founder, President and CEO of Silver State Helicopters, as a member. He joins other prominent business and government leaders who serve as advisors to NEDAB which oversee PCMC's goal of developing a strong client base in Nevada, which PCMC believes will in turn contribute to Nevada's overall economic growth. With its business-friendly securities laws and numerous economic development incentives, Nevada is fertile ground for business growth.

"NEDAB is poised to help expand the Nevada economy based on the incredible business environment that exists and the incentives offered by the state to companies willing to relocate," said Airola. "I am excited for the opportunity to provide guidance to NEDAB and assist in its efforts."

Jerry Airola is Founder and CEO of Silver State Helicopters. Within five years Silver State went from a one-man operation out of Henderson, Nevada to a premier full-service commercial helicopter operator servicing 44 locations in 18 states with more than 850 employees. With a law enforcement background and more than 20 years of executive management experience, Jerry turned his hobby of flying helicopters into a business and currently holds a commercial pilot's license and continues to fly missions for various police agencies across the nation. For the past two years, Silver State Helicopters has made the Inc. 500 list, and the company is the fastest growing aviation and transportation company in the world today.

Most recently, the National Republican Congressional Committee appointed Jerry to serve on the Business Advisory Council and Nevada State Governor Jim Gibbons placed him on The Public Safety Transition team. In 2005, he was awarded the corporate hero award from the North Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce for his work and leadership in the community. In November 2007, Silver State Helicopters was acclaimed as one of the hottest companies to watch and Jerry Airola was selected as entrepreneur of the year by In Business Las Vegas.
