''We are pleased to add this new rating to our capabilities and look forward to signing new customers for our CRJ 100/200 heavy line maintenance,'' said Remy St-Martin, Vice President Commercial Services. ''We are extremely excited to offer a competitive service offering in the marketplace. Our Marketing team is currently participating at the Bombardier CRJ Operator conference in Toronto from May 2 to 4, and we will be meeting with various CRJ Operators and forging new business alliances in the coming weeks and months.''

DATS' decision to locate in Quebec City was motivated by the availability of a pool of highly-qualified labour specializing in regional aircraft maintenance and overhaul. DATS personnel hold qualifications on a large number of regional aircraft including the DASH 8, SAAB 340, ERJ 135/145, CRJ 100/200 and Boeing 737. DATS' well-equipped maintenance facility will enable the delivery of an extensive range of capabilities including welding, avionics, engineering, machining, heat treatment, composite and sheet metal repairs.
