Nashville, Tennessee October 17, 2012: Airline Maintenance Services, Inc. (AMS) announced today that they have recently signed an expanded maintenance agreement with American Eagle Airlines, Inc.. American Eagle Airlines, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of AMR Corporation, the parent company of American Airlines.
This expanded agreement will include AMS Technicians meeting each American Eagle flight as it arrives at the gate in Nashville as well as performing overnight checks and “run taxi” checks. AMS technicians are currently undergoing training on the Embraer and Canadair regional jets that American Eagle flies. To support the expanded role of AMS at Nashville the company recently moved into larger facilities in the Air Freight building. Additionally, AMS is seeking to hire six additional Technicians. The company expects to be fulfilling the terms of its new agreement before the end of the year.
Corey Gillard, AMS President, said “Providing on call service to airliners filled with anxious passengers and crew and working with gate agents and ground crew who are under pressure for on-time departures can be daunting and stressful. The AMS team of highly skilled and professional technicians do so daily with an enviable record for safety, quality, and speed. We are looking forward to serving American Eagle Airlines in this expanded role.”
