Quasar Announces Open House

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2012) - Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc.(PINKSHEETS: QASP) and its subsidiaries, A-cent Aviation, Inc. and Atlantic Aviation, Inc., in conjunction with EAA Chapter 193, are proud to announce an Open House to be held at the Herlong Airport located at 9300 Normandy Blvd., Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, March the 17th at 9:00 a.m. This Open House is open to the public and will allow anyone with an interest in aviation an opportunity to view many aspects of recreational flying.

Flight Instructors and aircraft from the school will participate in "Young Eagles" flights. This program allows young adults to take an introductory flight designed to increase their interest in becoming a pilot. The school's full-motion Redbird Flight Simulator will be open to the public and will allow participants to experience flight training techniques only recently available to the recreational flight student.

Other activities sponsored by the school will include a hot air balloon demonstration, a replica Navy aircraft cockpit and a view of the school newest addition, a Cessna 162 Sky Catcher Light Sport aircraft.

EAA Chapter 193 will sponsor flights on Ford Tri-Motor aircraft. This aircraft was one of the world's first commercial airliners. This Ford Tri-Motor is one of only three still flying in the United States.

Henry Ford mobilized millions of Americans and created a new market with his Model T "Tin Lizzie" automobile from 1909 to 1926. After World War I he recognized the potential for mass air transportation. Ford's Tri-Motor aircraft, nicknamed "The Tin Goose," was designed to build another new market, airline travel. To overcome concerns of engine reliability, Ford specified three engines and added features for passenger comfort, such as an enclosed cabin. The first three Tri-Motors built seated the pilot in an open cockpit, as many pilots doubted a plane could be flown without direct "feel of the wind." Ford Motor Company built 199 Tri-Motors from 1926 through 1933. EAA's model 4-AT-E was number 146 off Ford's innovative assembly line and first flew on August 21, 1929. It was sold to Pitcairn Aviation's passenger division, Eastern Air Transport, whose paint scheme is replicated on EAA's Tri-Motor. This is why our Ford resides in the Pitcairn hangar at Pioneer Airport. Eastern Air Transport later became Eastern Airlines.

Come join us for a great day of history and technology. Bring the kids, have a hot dog and see how easy it is to become involved with an activity that will change your life.
