Laurans A. Mendelson, HEICO's Chairman and CEO, commenting on the Company's first quarter results stated, "We are very pleased to report record quarterly highs in consolidated net sales, operating income and net income for our first quarter of fiscal 2011 driven principally by record sales within our Flight Support Group and strong sales within our Electronic Technologies Group.

Net sales of our Flight Support Group increased 29% in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 to a record $120.6 million, up from $93.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010. The increase in net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 over the first quarter of fiscal 2010 reflects significant organic growth approximating 24% reflecting increased commercial airline capacity as well as additional revenues of approximately $3 million contributed by a recent acquisition. Net sales of our Flight Support Group have now increased over each of the past four quarters.
