Oshkosh, WI, July 29, 2010 -- Today at AirVenture 2010, Tecnam North America announced Ocean Air Flight Services, Inc., a California flight school located in the San Francisco Bay area, among the first of its Tecnam Flight Centers.

"I love the fact that Tecnam Flight Center training materials have been developed for the iPad as well as for more traditional content delivery mechanisms.", announced Gryphon McArthur, general manager of Ocean Air Flight Services. "Our student pilots will greatly benefit from materials tailored to our Tecnam P92 Eaglet light sport aircraft and the specific requirements for obtaining the sport pilot license.", McArthur continued.

"By providing ground school and flight lesson courseware via interactive, mobile data platforms such as the Apple iPad, Tecnam Flight Centers can offer a real advantage over traditional flight training programs.", says Ray Swanson, V.P. of Distribution for Tecnam North America, "As an established Tecnam Service Center, we are very happy to have Ocean Air Flight Services sign on as one of the first of our Tecnam Flight Centers."
