                                   Expansion Plan Brings Academy to Equip with state-of-the-art FNPT

Montreal, March 9, 2009 – Mechtronix Systems, a division of Mechtronix World Corp., one of the top three leading
providers of flight training equipment in the world, today announced the purchase by the GGIFA International Aviation
College of an Ascent® Flight Trainer™ configured as a single engine piston Cessna 172R equipped with Garmin 1000

provide Commercial Pilot License, Instrument Rating, Visual Flight Rules courses to both local and international students;
the new FTD will support GGIFA International Aviation College’s expansion plan.

The Ascent® Flight Trainer™ will feature a 180 x 35 degree visual system and a Redifun Simulation Inc. (RSI) Image
Generator that will provide its users with exceptional fidelity. Its semi-enclosed IOS area provides for easy interaction
between instructor and student. The visual and sound systems included in the unit are compliant to Full Flight Simulator
Level D requirements. The C172R cockpit delivers a high fidelity flight experience replicating 100% of the touch and feel
of real avionics parts. The training academy plans to deploy the unit in spring of 2009 while seeking qualification with the
Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) under JAR FSTD A FNPT II.
