Synodon Receives FAA Flight Certification for Smaller Helicopter

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 2, 2015) - Synodon Inc. ("Synodon") (TSX VENTURE:SYD), announces that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approving the installation of Synodon's realSens™ system on Bell 206B Jet Ranger type helicopters registered and operating in the United States. Synodon already holds an STC for this helicopter in Canada as well as STC's in both Canada and United States for the larger Bell 206L Long Ranger. Synodon has been operating exclusively on the costlier Bell 201L Long Ranger helicopter in the United States until now.

"We are very pleased to conclude this flight-worthiness certification process that was initiated with the FAA nearly 12 months ago. The receipt of this STC affords Synodon more operational flexibility. We can now use a short range helicopter, which has lower hourly operating costs, for short flight segments and a long range helicopter, which requires fewer fuelling stops, for longer flight segments. As a result of this increase in efficiency, we anticipate a reduction in aviation costs for our customers while also improving Synodon's operating margins", said Mr. Adrian Banica, President and CEO of Synodon.

( is a technology company which has developed an advanced airborne remote gas sensing system called realSens™, based on technologies developed under the Canadian Space Program and by Synodon scientists.
