One Giant Step For Airline Passenger Safety

AeroMechanical Services Ltd. (TSX:V-AMA)
Basic Shares: 82.5 million

AeroMechanical Services (AMA) has achieved a monumental agreement, which opens the aeronautical world to its data streaming technology.

It is partnering with L-3 Communications to jointly market and sell AMA's real-time data and internet solutions. L-3 sells Flight Data Recorders, or as they are more commonly known, "black boxes." The key to this combination is that for the first time, the much talked about black box and its data will be live.

In short, even in advance of an aircraft accident, data will be streamed and investigations can begin their vital work before the black box is recovered.

This agreement is a coup for AeroMechanical and speaks volumes about AMA's technology as L3 is the dominant player in the world with more than $14 billion in annual sales.

Now, experts on the ground can be instantly notified of a problem on board an aircraft and analyze the data - even ask for more data from the aircraft - to see if they can help the pilots through an emergency.

That’s because AeroMechanical’s technology known as afirstm or Automated Flight Information Reporting System transmitting through the Iridium satellite network allows ground experts to text or phone pilots at any time, no matter where the pilots are flying.

This is one giant leap in passenger safety.

And investors should note that within a relatively short time period from the last major aircraft incident, the largest producer of black boxes chose to create a partnership with AeroMechanical.
As AMA now has one of the most respected avionics company in the world as its partner, one must ponder what this could mean for the future of AeroMedchanical's business!
