Provider of technological products and services to the airline industry AeroMechanical Services Ltd (TSX VENTURE:AMA) on Monday announced it will ship the first three production units of the next generation Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS) 228B to customers for implementation and integration testing.

The production units are said to have passed quality assurance tests conducted by AMA before shipment as well as hardware and software tests.

AMA said it will receive Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) on a number of models when flight tests are completed later in 2011. A provisional STC has been received for the Boeing 777, the Bombardier CRJ 900 and the Hawker 987 series and a launch installation has been completed on the Hawker. To complete the each STC the equipment must undergo a flight test and the CRJ 900 will be the next to fly.

The 228B is the first release in the series of 228 products, which are a new generation of AMA's AFIRS product line that has been delivered to over 35 customers around the world for installation on over 300 aircraft across seven continents.
