Corvus Energy Exhibiting at the Cygnus Aviation Expo

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Corvus Energy will be exhibiting at the Cyngus Aviation Expo at booth #1825 from March 7 to 9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. The 15th annual expo is the premier event for the industry's leading aviation professionals in ground support, FBO and aircraft maintenance. This year the exhibition runs concurrently with the SAE 2012 Aerospace and Defense Ground Support Equipment Conference, allowing attendees of both events to learn about the latest technologies from more than 250 aerospace and ground equipment leaders.

At the exhibition, Corvus Energy will display its CorPower lithium electric conversion kits for gasoline and diesel GSE that have several advantages over diesel and gas powered equipment:

· cost effective – Corvus lithium powered battery systems eliminate fuel consumption and are eligible for carbon credits.

· reliable - Unlike their lead acid counterparts, Corvus Energy powered GSE require no maintenance, come with 24/7 support, remote diagnostics, and have an 8 year / 20,000 hour battery warranty.

· environmentally-friendly – The solution eradicates GHG emissions and improves air quality. There are no particle emissions, no noise pollution, and the 8-year battery is also 99% recyclable.

· safe – The batteries are the safest available in the market today. They exceed all applicable standards, are contained in fully sealed cases, and have no flammable off-gassing.

Corvus lithium GSE solutions are currently available in two classes: CorPower MA Tow Tractor Retrofit Kits and CorPower 660 Belt Loader Retrofit Kits.

The company also has two types of CorPower GSE installation kits: a retrofit kit for field installation and OEM production kits. The retrofit kits are available in light, medium and heavy duty, ranging in power from 6.5 kWh to 19.5 kWh.

Corvus will display a converted TUG Technologies 660 belt loader and a converted TUG Technologies MA50 baggage tractor at their booth. They will also have two converted MA50’s available for attendees to test drive in the demos on demand test drive arena.

In addition, Brent Perry, Corvus Energy’s CEO, will participate in the following events:
