"We could not say this enough times-‘the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for people who develop lung cancer after asbestos exposure in the navy or at work’-not just mesothelioma. ”

— Texas US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, April 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Texas US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Navy Veteran or person anywhere in Texas with recently diagnosed lung cancer to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if prior to 1982 the had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work. Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's leading asbestos exposure attorneys and he and colleagues are responsible for over a billion dollars in compensation for people like this. The typical person the Advocate is trying to help is over 60 years old and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Advocate says, "We could not say this enough times-‘the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for people who develop lung cancer after heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work’-not just mesothelioma. The asbestos exposure must have occurred before 1982. If the person we have described sounds like your husband or dad anywhere in Texas-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Texas US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, Fort Worth, Corpus Christi, Plano, Laredo, Arlington or anywhere in Texas. https://Texas.USNavyLungCancer.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Texas include Veterans of the US Navy, a civilian employee at Ford Hood, Fort Bliss or Lakeland Air Force Base, a power plant worker at one of Texas’s dozens of nuclear or conventional power plants, a oil refinery worker at one of Texas’s numerous oil refineries, oil rig workers, chemical plant workers, shipyard workers, factory workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, welders, millwrights, insulators, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com/

Important Note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact. Frequently compensation for people like this might exceed $100,000.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware. www.karstvonoiste.com/

New York US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate Appeals to a Navy Submarine Veteran with Mesothelioma in New York to Call Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste-Get Better Compensation-It Might Exceed $1,000,000

"We are appealing to a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma anywhere in New York State to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss financial compensation.”

— New York US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate

BUFFALO , NEW YORK , USA, April 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New York US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate says, "We are appealing to a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed mesothelioma or possible mesothelioma anywhere in New York State to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss financial compensation-especially if they served on a submarine. Mesothelioma compensation for a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma might exceed a million dollars. For a Navy Submarine Veteran-the compensation might be more-because on a submarine it is nearly impossible for the crew-to go on deck for a breather. Prior to 1982 all US Navy Submarines contained asbestos.

"The average age for a person with mesothelioma in the US is 72 years old and their asbestos exposure probably took place in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s. A Navy Submarine Veteran in most instances would have spent more time in the navy-because of all of the additional training needed to get assigned to a boat. If the person we have described sounds like your husband or dad, and he has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma or suspected mesothelioma please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's leading mesothelioma attorneys and will know how to help you." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The New York US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate is especially focused on assisting former factory workers with mesothelioma in upstate New York, including the following communities: Buffalo, Amsterdam, Schenectady, Binghamton, Rochester, Syracuse, Watertown, Utica, Rome, or Poughkeepsie.
https://NewYork.USNavyMesothelioma.Com

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in New York, the New York US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate strongly recommends the following three heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at each hospital:

* New York City’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Clinic:

* Columbia Presbyterian

* New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital

The New York US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate specializes in financial compensation for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in New York include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, maritime workers, manufacturing, or industrial workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, railroad workers or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. https://NewYork.USNavyMesothelioma.Com

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, based on the calls the Advocate receives, diagnosed victims of mesothelioma could live in any state, including New York State. www.karstvonoiste.com/

L3Harris Technologies and Bye Aerospace have signed an agreement to develop an all-electric, multi-mission aircraft

ENGLEWOOD, CO, UNITED STATES, April 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Highlights:
• Combined team designing a mission package for all-electric Bye Aerospace eFlyer 800™
• eFlyer 800 provides multi-mission capability with low operating cost, zero emissions
L3Harris evaluating multiple mission system configurations

L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) and Bye Aerospace have signed an agreement to develop an all-electric, multi-mission aircraft that will provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities for domestic and international ISR mission operators.

The companies will modify the recently announced eight-seat, all-electric, twin-motor eFlyer 800™ aircraft, which features twin 500 kW (670 HP) electric engines – well suited for the ISR mission. The eFlyer 800 will offer excellent mission range, persistent overwatch and payload capacity with the added benefits of one-fifth of a traditional turboprop’s operating cost, zero emissions and a minimal logistical footprint for operations in the field.

The eFlyer 800’s all-electric motors do not combust fuel with air, creating torque from electricity alone, removing legacy turboprop engine limitations. All-electric propulsion allows the aircraft to operate with low thermal signature and in virtual silence both inside and outside of the cockpit, which will enable new flexibility for both low and high-altitude mission operations.

L3Harris will collaborate with Bye Aerospace using the latest digital engineering tools to model survivability, mission effectiveness, logistics and platform performance in multiple mission configurations. L3Harris is a world leader in providing multi-mission airborne ISR solutions, with decades of experience in missionizing aircraft for a variety of missions using virtually all aircraft types.

“Applying our missionization expertise to Bye Aerospace’s all-electric platform will help drive future mission applications,” said Luke Savoie, President, Aviation Services, L3Harris. “These platforms offer sustainability and mission advantages that will benefit a new generation of tactical manned ISR mission aircraft.”

Bye Aerospace is a pioneer in applying innovative electric propulsion systems to its aircraft, which will dramatically reduce operations cost and eliminate CO2. The company also develops and integrates structural and mechanical systems and aerodynamic advances for increased performance.

“L3Harris is the Gold Standard in mission systems, providing the technologies and solutions critical to our government and military customer needs,” said George E. Bye, CEO, Bye Aerospace. “We are excited to be partnering with L3Harris to develop the next-generation, all-electric, aircraft for multi-modal military applications. We are honored that they believe in our vision for eFlyer 800 electric aircraft and look forward to our journey together.”

About Bye Aerospace
Bye Aerospace has developed and is in the process of FAA certifying a family of zero-emission, electric-aircraft that are one-fifth the operating cost than traditional airplanes. As a pioneer in electric aviation, Bye Aerospace has established itself as an industry leader with a back log of over 700 aircraft. Based in Denver, Colo., Bye Aerospace was founded by George E.
