    4TH B787 UNDER CAMO CONTRACT

    AMES has recently been contracted by a new customer to perform the delivery technical acceptance of an in-service B787-8 airplane. This airplane had been operating with an airline for several years and the work-scope included documentation review and on-site coordination with physical survey. In addition we have been contracted to offer CAMO services with a complete phase-in project in order to change airplane registration and be ready for the entry into service with the new operator. A major activity has been to prepare and reload the new airplane software certificates as part of the Initial Data Load / e-enabling services. This project has been achieved on a short time line allowing the plane to be already in operation. We are now increasing our knowledge and expertise on the B787 family! We are glad to have been contracted for this project by a reputable operator.
