Environmental Tectonics Corporation Plans to Launch NASTAR Center at Farnborough

SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Environmental Tectonics Corporation (Amex: ETC) today announced that it will unveil its revolutionary aerospace training and research center at the Farnborough International Airshow on July 17-23, 2006. The National Aerospace Training and Research (NASTAR) Center is a turn-key facility that advances commercial and government training and research capabilities for all types of human space flight, as well as defense and civil aviation.

The first NASTAR Center will "take off" in January 2007 near Philadelphia, PA. ETC plans to open NASTAR Centers around the globe in the next few years. "The NASTAR Center is our flagship product," said William F. Mitchell, ETC's President and Chairman. "It is designed to deliver state-of-the-art aerospace training and an economical alternative to the increasingly limited defense and civil aviation training and research opportunities. The NASTAR Centers will also lead training and research in the new arena of private space travel."

At the hub of the NASTAR Center's extensive and unique capabilities is an Authentic Tactical Flight Simulator, the ATFS-400, an advanced human centrifuge which realistically replicates, with real-time G-force feedback, the flight profile of many aircraft, including an F18 or an A380, as well as private space launch vehicles. As several customers have commented, "It comes as close as possible to flying the real thing."

The ETC team at the Farnborough International Airshow will be located in Hall 2, Booth B35 to demonstrate ETC products and services and answer any questions.

ETC designs, develops, installs and maintains aircrew training systems, public entertainment systems, process simulation systems (sterilization and environmental), clinical hyperbaric systems, environmental testing and simulation systems, and related products for domestic and international customers.
