AeroMechanical Services Ltd. (AMA) has announced a 5-year contract extension from a major Bombardier Q Series regional operator based in the West Indies. This customer has been a user of AMA's patented afirs UpTime solution since 2005.
    
The contract extension includes equipping an expanded fleet with AMA's Automated Flight Information Reporting System afirs, UpTime web-based services, and on-site assistance. The 5-year value of the new
contract is in excess of $2,200,000 US depending upon the timing of the additional installations and the extent of on-site services required.
    
"We are pleased that one of our original customers will be relying on afirs UpTime voice and data for operational control, increased aircraft availability, and lower operating costs. Their widely distributed operations over 22 destinations in the Eastern Caribbean are very well served by afirs(TM) continuous communication capabilities and the central information and report delivery provided by UpTime", stated Richard Hayden, President of AMA.
