AMES Servicing Five DHL-Owned Boeing 767s For Reactivation

Stocks in this article: ATSG

Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services, Inc. (AMES), announced that it completed heavy maintenance services for the first of five DHL-owned Boeing 767-200PCF aircraft, in advance of their conversion to special freighter configuration.

The first of the 767-200-series aircraft was completed ahead of schedule. Two additional aircraft are currently undergoing similar heavy maintenance and modifications to be completed in 2011. The fourth and fifth aircraft are scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2012.

“DHL has been very pleased with AMES’ ability to tailor its services to meet DHL’s specific needs, while maintaining a high level of quality workmanship and overall value for the project,” remarked David Sheedy, Network Technical Director for DHL Aviation Americas.

AMES President Brady Templeton commented, “This announcement further reinforces the value of our full-service model and builds upon the work that AMES is currently providing for DHL, which includes line maintenance, engineering and manufacturing, and component repair and overhaul services.”

Apart from these five aircraft, AMES previously completed heavy maintenance on four DHL-owned 767 freighters. In addition to these, AMES maintains 13 other 767 freighters leased to DHL by Cargo Aircraft Management, another subsidiary of AMES’ parent company, Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATSG).

“Our extensive background with the Boeing 767 aircraft, as well as many other airframe types, makes us one of the leading independent providers of these services,” added Templeton. “Aside from Boeing itself, we lead the MRO industry in experience maintaining Boeing 767 freighter and passenger configurations. Upon completion of these five DHL-owned aircraft, AMES will have performed over 50 C-Checks on B767 aircraft.”

The conversion of the five B767-200PCF aircraft to special freighter configuration will be managed by CAM.
