AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2012 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

AvStar Aviation Group, Inc. (AvStar) (OTC: AAVG) said that its Twin Air Calypso Ltd., Inc. subsidiary has been in discussions with the city of Naples Airport Authority to provide air carrier service based in Naples, Florida.

TACL has formally informed the city of Naples Airport Authority that it will commence its "Naples Connection" air service from Naples, Florida to four Florida destinations beginning October 22, 2012.

The service will be the first in what the company is branding as its "Community Airline" concept that is designed to fill the void left in smaller communities by the reduction in major and regional airline service. TACL expects to generate annual revenue in the range of $1MM with its Naples Connection air service.

TACL's Naples air service will be performed using Cessna 208B "Grand Caravan" aircraft and will initially operate to the Florida cities of Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Key West and Orlando.

The Ft. Lauderdale route schedule is designed to connect with TACL's existing flights to the islands of Eleuthera and Abaco in the Bahamas. Additionally, a Piper Navajo Chieftain will be based in Naples as an auxiliary and charter aircraft.
