OREM, Utah - May 9, 2001 - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) chose PowerQuest® Corporation, a provider of proven solutions for storage management, to supply the deployment solution for its Computer Based Instruction (CBI) National Program Office.

"Using Drive Image Pro enables us to maintain a standardized platform configuration," says Patricia Crosby of CBI. "Drive Image Pro helps us provide a consistent quality product, maintenance and support."

CBI is responsible for the distribution of more than 250 courses throughout the FAA and supports and maintains a vast network of state-of-the-art multimedia platforms located at FAA offices worldwide.
