The potential total value of the contract is estimated to be $550,000 over 5 years, based on list prices and anticipated flight hours.

Skyservice Business Aviation's decision to purchase is based on the following identified benefits:

• the solution will decrease aircraft downtime by allowing Skyservice to
    capture maintenance issues and to identify failure trends before the
    issue causes an AOG event.
•   STAR-A.D.S will provide real-time tracking and
    monitoring functions, which will allow Skyservice to monitor their
    aircraft and their flight status, at any time, worldwide.
Sam Cimone, the President of Skyservice Business Aviation said,

"Our company is continuously looking at improving its operations and efficiency and more importantly, the safety of our passengers and clients. The STAR-A.D.S. solution, with the precise data it continuously and globally provides, coupled with its analysis abilities, will enhance our performance, and assist us in monitoring the aircraft in real time. This will ensure better utilization of the aircraft and safety for the passenger."


Neil A. Prasad, Star's VP Global Sales, said,

"Skyservice Business Aviation is a world leader in aviation, with their highest priorities being placed on service and safety. Skyservice has been recognized by Aviation Research Group/US (ARG/US) with the award of the highly sought after "Platinum" rating. We are honoured by Skyservice's decision to work with us and we are excited by this opportunity this gives us to demonstrate the value and benefits that the STAR-A.D.S. service will bring to Skyservice Business Aviation Inc.".
