Southampton, PA - February 7, 2013 - ETC ( announced today the
shipment of the final  main motion system components  of the  Authentic Tactical
Flight Simulator (ATFS 400 Model 31)
( ..
aircraft)  to its customer,  the United States Air Force, where the flight
simulator will be installed at the 711th Human Performance Wing's new complex at
Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.

Shipped today were the final major components of the gimbal system, consisting
of the roll ring and gondola assembly. In ETC's design, the gondola serves as
the container which houses the interchangeable, aircraft specific "cockpit" and
is where the trainee is placed during utilization of the simulator. The roll
ring assembly encases the gondola structure and provides the physical actuation
of the gondola in roll axis.  It 
is responsible for providing a portion of the motion which allows the alignment of the G forces on the subject to mimic the real physiological effects of flight. To date, the majority of the device components have shipped and are currently onsite, ready for integration with the existing structures. Components yet to ship are non-motion system related items. States William F. Mitchell, President and CEO, "we are pleased that the device is coming together so well and are looking forward to the end of 2013 when we anticipate being able to finally commission the device and begin testing". The ATFS-400 Model 31 will be used by the USAF to support aircrew high-G training, acceleration research, as well as a variety of other training and research initiatives.
