IWG Water Treament Products Near Sound Barrier

International Water-Guard (TSX-V: IWG)
Basic Shares: 39.3 million
Fully Diluted: 46.5 million
International Water Guard is one giant step closer to travelling near the speed of sound as one of its customers - Gulfstream Aerospace - rolled out a test aircraft for its revolutionary corporate jet.
The jet is called the G650 and it is the fastest, largest and longest-range corporate jet in the world. It is an eye popping bird that can hit a maximum operating speed of mach 0.925, which is just shy of the speed of sound.
And being the best of the best, it also features IWG's most-advanced water handling system so the corporate executives flying in far flung parts of the world can rest easy knowing they won't fall ill - or worse - from water-born contaminants.
This corporate jet, like others IWG has its water handling and water disinfection technology aboard, means all the water available to passengers is safe and clean. The same can't be said for the vast majority of commercial passenger aircraft that feature Do Not Drink warning signs on washroom taps.
Instead, most commercial airlines carry heavy supplies of bottled water, which adds to an aircraft's fuel-burning weight, to ensure passengers don't fall ill. Meanwhile, the United States Environmental Protection Agency warns airline passengers to not drink on-board coffee or tea if those passengers have weakened immune systems or they are concerned the water wasn't boiled long enough to kill off all deadly bugs.
Industry observers stated that Gulfstream already has firm orders for 200 of these sleek, premier aircraft. More orders are expected as the planes appearing at airports around the world to tantalize other corporate executives.
IWG President & CEO David Fox sent his best wishes to Gulfstream executives on this major achievement. The test plane will be subjected to rigorous testing in preparation for its first flight later this year.
Gulfstream announced earlier that it expects to have the aircraft globally certified by 2011 and in full service by 2012.
