Automatic Appoints Acumen for EASA CAMO Transition Project

Dublin based Aircraft Lease Management Company Acumen Aviation has been appointed by Automatic to provide EASA CAMO services for the transition of two Boeing 737 aircraft from the United States to Europe. The aircraft are understood to be EI-GHA (c/n 28895) and EI-GHB (c/n 28896) for Air Mistral in Italy. EI-GHA, ex. Alaska Airlines N708AS, recently underwent a cargo conversion whereas EI-GHB, ex. Alaska Air Cargo N709AS, was Alaska Air Cargo’s first 734F converted back in 2006.

The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) recently expanded Acumen’s CAMO approval with the addition of the Bombardier Dash 8 / Q400 series, ATR 42/72 Series and Boeing 737 Classic Series. These additions together with the currently held Airbus 320 Family and Boeing 737 NG Series approvals ensure that Acumen is equipped to meet the growing customer needs.

The Continuing Airworthiness Manager, Mr. James Flynn said: “We are thrilled to increase the scope of work of the CAMO which will dovetail neatly into all the other aspects of the Acumen brand has to offer”.

Florida based ‘Automatic’ is a commercial aircraft leasing, sales and trading specialist. Formed in September of 2000, Automatic specialises in Fleet acquisitions, passenger to freight conversions, and aircraft spares inventory leasing, sale and trading.
