ETC to Upgrade FAA Altitude Simulation Chambers
SOUTHAMPTON, PA, USA, August 18, 2014 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) announced today the award of two separate contracts for the upgrade of two altitude simulation chambers originally provided by ETC to the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) and currently used for training and research at their Oklahoma City, OK facility.
The original contracts were for the sale of two altitude simulation chambers to the FAA in 1996. The most recent contract awards will upgrade essential components in the vacuum and environmental system, and upon completion of the upgrades, the chambers will have increased operational capability and enhanced safety.
Altitude simulation chambers are typically utilized to provide altitude training to aircrews and to create hypoxic research environments for a variety of investigational scenarios.
“We feel honored to have such a positive and longstanding working relationship with the FAA in a variety of areas”, stated William F. Mitchell, Chairman and CEO of ETC.” Altitude simulation training is a must for any private, commercial, or military aircrew, to ensure the highest degree of preparedness for flight”.
