“North American Airlines has been impressed with AMES ability to provide strong technical support and capability on the B767-300,” commented NAA Senior Director of Maintenance and Engineering Richard Sosa. “AMES has displayed a flexibility allowing for the successful accomplishment of additional maintenance requirements outside of the scheduled workscope without impacting or compromising the operational schedule.
