    SECOND VVIP B747-8 UNDER CAMO CONTRACT

    A couple of months ago we have been contracted by VIP operator Global JET Isle of Man to perform CAMO activities for a VVIP B747-8 they were adding to their fleet. Considering our company AMES had already 6 years experience managing such a unique airplane model, it appeared to be more efficient for Global JET to contract us on this project. We already had such a cooperation together on a VVIP B787-8 and it worked very well. We are still working on the enrolment phase to review all maintenance history back to Boeing production but we are already fully ready for the daily CAMO activities. This is showing that CAMO Sub contracting on some specific airplane models can be an efficient way for operators to monitor the regulatory airworthiness requirements, using dedicated competent and trained work forces. Our independance is allowing us to be your partner and get you a rapid option to face a short time-line on specific projects. Let us know if you have any request.

    B747-400 CAMO

    At a time when most of the airlines have retired their B747-400 airplanes, we at AMES have been developping our CAMO expertise on this model for the past 3 years. Indeed it started back in 2020 when we got asked to work on 2 ea cargo airplanes and with the world-wide pandemic, the cargo activity increased so much that we had up to 8 airplanes into operation and some more airplanes under enrolment. Even though the cargo market has gone quiet, we continue to expand our knowledge with one of our VIP customer who contracted us back in August 2022 for their VIP B747-400 on which we have been working to review all the maintenance records, quite an extensive job! Working on this B747-400 model gave us really good experience on ageing airplane issues and Supplemental Structural Inspection Program (SSIP), with some airplanes having past 30 years and 120,000 Hrs or 20,000 Cycles! There are not many B747-400 airplanes still in operation and consequently not many experienced CAMOs maintaining this capacity but we are one of them! Let us know if you are in need of this expertise.

    AMES VOICE TO BOEING CUSTOMER SUPPORT

    Boeing offered AMES the opportunity to participate to their "Voice Out to Customer" (VOC) program. This gives the occasion to different airlines, operators and Leasing Companies to share “who they are” and “what they do” with Boeing Customer Support. Just before the last BBJ OOC Mickael made a presentation in front of nearly 80 persons from the Boeing support in Seal Beach. The one hour presentation was also streamed on Boeing webex for another one hundred attendees. This has been the perfect occasion to present what is an EASA CAMO working on VIP airplanes, what we expect from Boeing support teams and what are the problems we have to face. We are proud to be the first VOC participant coming from the VIP aviation and we hope it will improve our relation with Boeing support as well benefit to the BBj community!

    BACK FROM THE 2023 BBJ CONFERENCE

    Mickael and Jean-René have attended the annual Boeing BBJ Owner and Operator conference in Newport Beach on Sept 11-15th.

    3EA BOEING B787 RE-DELIVERY

    AMES got contracted back in January 2022 by the owner representatives of 3 ea airliner B787-8 which were in storage, to be the CAMO and continue storage activities. Damien our B787 specialist took care of the preservation activities with the two different MROs during a year and a half! In addition we had to make a full documentation review and re-organize the complete records in order to allow the recent sale of the 3 airplanes to a new owner. Our team led by Jean-Mathieu spent hundreds of hours in this project considering the records received from the previous operator were delivered without being organized. This has been a challenging project but allowed us to improve our processes and we learnt a lot in terms of airline re-delivery expectations and this will benefit to our entire fleet of VIP airplanes. We are now set to handle more of those projects, please contact us if you need assistance!
