ETC Announces Final Acceptance of Spanish Air Force Altitude Chambers
SOUTHAMPTON, PA, USA, August 8, 2014 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) announced today the final acceptance of two altitude training and research chambers (www.etcaircrewtraining.com/hypobaric-chamber-altitude-chamber) provided to the Spanish Air Force (SPAF) and installed at their aerospace medical training center (CIMA) in Madrid, Spain.
The first contract required moving the original chamber, first sold by ETC to the SPAF in 1978, from its initial location to the new CIMA, located at Torrejon Air Force Base.
The second chamber, a new Falcon altitude chamber, Model 12/4, was delivered, integrated, man-rated, and commissioned into service at the new CIMA location. The Falcon family of altitude chambers provides the most current technology available in altitude simulation. Both systems are able to support a host of research and operational missions.
During a tour of the new facility, Spain`s Minister of Defense, Pedro Morenes, was present and provided an overview of the chamber and ETC`s technology. He thanked the team who were onsite for a job well done.
“Their pilots will have expanded and enhanced capabilities in this area,” said William F. Mitchell, Chairman and CEO of ETC. “Altitude simulation training is critical for any military with personnel who fly or perform other excercises at high altitudes. We are grateful for our positive and productive relations with the SPAF.”
