AeroMechanical Featured Around The World.


AeroMechanical's role in a recent round-the-world, record-busting flight will be aired on the popular television program, Daily Planet, on Feb. 19th and Feb. 20th.

The part that AeroMechanical (AMA) played in the successful 80-day flight by two daring Indian Air Force (IAF) pilots is scheduled to be aired around 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. (MST) on Feb 19th and 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. (MST) on Feb. 20th.

IAF Wing Commander Rahul Monga and Wing Commander Anil Kamur completed the world odessy in a microlight aircraft in 80 days, handily beating the previous 99-day record.

Monga wrote to AMA CEO Bill Tempany after the gruelling flight that having AMA's tracking and communications equipment on board was not only a potential life saver as they flew over hostile and remote parts of the world, the ability to call anyone from anywhere in the world proved vital to completing the flight in a record-breaking time.

A Daily Planet television crew interviewed AMA CFO Tom French and Mr. Monga when the microlight had an overnight stop in Brampton, Ontario last summer.

Daily Planet is a hugely popular television show that airs around the world.

In other news, AMA issued a clarifying press release Feb. 15th that gave - on the advise of the Toronto Stock Exchange - greater detail about three previously announced contracts.

The heaftier detail, such as length of the contracts and expected total funds, gives investors a much better idea about AMA's future financial picture.

And all of the contracts still fit with the target monthly revenue rate from each AFIRs unit installed of about $2,000 per month.
