SOAR Expands Operations

Newport Beach, California – April 8, 2008 – SOAR, an aircraft evaluation, recovery, repair and modification provider and a division of Source One Aviation, has recently added satellite representatives in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom and expanded into a larger U.S. facility.

Mr. Roger Thompson, based in England, will be the local point of contact for SOAR’s growing European business and Mr. Anthony Chan will promote SOAR’s recovery opportunities in Asia from his office in Hong Kong. Both gentlemen bring decades of exceptional knowledge of the aviation repair, recovery and modification environments.

Jim Jijawi, Managing Director comments, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Roger and Anthony to our global marketing operations. The ability of SOAR to have a physical presence closely located to our customer base allows us to rapidly respond to the requirements of grounded or impact damaged aircraft.”

To accommodate SOAR’s and Source One Spares’ growing operations, Source One Aviation has recently expanded into a large water-front facility in Newport Beach creating a one-stop shopping compound of aviation services that include aircraft evaluation, incident repair, recovery, modification, just-in-time spare parts and parts logistics, aircraft sales and fleet maintenance.
