("Tempus") (OTC: TMPS) announced today its wholly owned subsidiary, Tempus Applied Solutions LLC, has acquired Proflight Aviation Services LLC, a San Marcos, Texas-based company that operates Proflight Academy, a Federal Aviation Administration-approved Part 141 Certificate flight school.

The Tempus-led flight school will continue to use and test Redbird's simulators, proficiency-based curriculum and Redbird's diesel Redhawk aircraft while offering pilot training at all levels under FAA Part 61 and Part 141 regulations.
