GREENWICH, Conn., Oct. 24, 2007 -- Megadata Corporation announced today that Dowling College School of Aviation has signed an agreement for PASSUR Portal, PASSUR inSight and PASSUR Pulse to use in teaching airport operations and air traffic courses.

"Real-world experiences are critical for effective learning - the PASSUR solutions are used throughout the world by all types of professional aviation organizations - we're very excited to enhance our curriculum with PASSUR," said Jeff DeCarlo, Director, National Aviation Technology Center, Research and Technology Division.

"Anyone just has to visit the Dowling School of Aviation to know that they're on the cutting edge of aviation education; we're pleased they've incorporated our solutions and especially proud to be part of the enrichment of an entirely new generation of aviation professionals," said Jim Barry, Megadata's president and CEO.

PASSUR Portal is at the heart of the PASSUR Collaborative Decision Making approach, providing an instant, live snapshot of vital operational information on a "web dashboard" of multiple information sets derived from the one-of-a-kind PASSUR database, and tools for instant information sharing and communication among all users.
Portal is the main access point for all other PASSUR web services.

PASSUR Pulse gives aviation organizations access to the most complete, accurate and timely activity reports based on the PASSUR database of flight information, including detailed owner/operator information.

PASSUR inSight is the only web-based flight following program that combines national en route flight tracking with precision, terminal-area tracking from the PASSUR network of radar, along with a next-generation graphics engine for real-motion tracking and aircraft movement, and the renowned PASSUR ETA.
