Avcorp Industries announced
Wednesday that it has signed a new agreement with Bombardier which
is expected to double the Company's production of horizontal

has manufactured over 1,000 units since the beginning of the highly
successful Bombardier regional and business jet programs.

in the third quarter with full production rates expected in the
fourth quarter onwards.
