Today, the line between recognizing a new aircraft and one that has undergone refurbishment is somewhat blurred. While, many owners acknowledge their aircraft to be well used, they might prefer keeping their aircraft as opposed to purchasing a newer model. In such cases owners typically choose avionic upgrades, fresh paint, and newly styled interiors to be sound investment decisions while others choose to acquire an alternative pre-owned aircraft, perhaps having design features that more effectively meet their desires and objectives.
AMS has assisted some owners who choose to perform modifications that go beyond partial or even complete refurbishment; opting to install improved engines, winglets and other major modifications that have been certified for their current aircraft.
Whether a normal refurbishment or major modification, AMS is frequently asked to represent their clients in areas of component selection, vender negotiations, project oversight and completion acceptance.
While a white overall base color with two stripes may still be the standard for some aircraft paint schemes, it is not uncommon for some owners to add flair of their own taste. Consequently, there are many exterior design options available from factory standard to the most unique and expressive exterior scheme imaginable.
Interiors are as much a breakthrough as the new aircraft that are developed around them. Not that long ago, aircraft interiors were basic with very little, or no, communication capabilities. Now, you can have the same communication and entertainment technology that is available in your own office. Today’s aircraft owners and passengers have become accustomed for such technologies and demand them in their aircraft. Satellite entertainment, Wi-Fi, Blue-ray, and sophisticated In-Flight Status Displays are now routinely installed. With space saving appliances and weight saving technology, even smaller cabin aircraft offer surprising opportunities for passengers to enjoy ample choices of food and beverages during their travels.
The rate is ever increasing for new product development and existing product improvement. AMS makes it a priority to access the latest information and keep close relationships with the most talented designers, engineers and mechanics fabricating lightweight, strong and well functioning components to make the passengers travel experience more pleasurable and productive.
