Hi All,
I thought this was interesting given the agreement between SMN & Delta Airlines.
Cheers

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/21/delta-air-lines-opens-worlds-largest-engine-test-cell-for-growing-mainenance-business.html
Delta Air Lines on Thursday unveiled a jet engine test facility it says is the largest in the world. It’s the airline’s latest bid to grow its aircraft maintenance business eightfold over the next five years by fixing its own planes and those of other airlines.

Delta TechOps, the carrier’s maintenance unit, fixes and maintains Delta’s fleet but also performs work for other airlines and the U.S. military. Delta TechOps was profitable last year, the airline said, but makes up a tiny part of its overall revenue. Last year it brought in more than $700 million, the carrier said in an investor presentation last December, compared with overall revenue of more than $44 billion.

Hi All,

Came across the below FedEx presentation which I thought was interesting on a couple of fronts:

FedEx operate 119 Boeing 757 aircraft (making them the second largest operator after Delta); and

Their C-Checks on those 757's are preformed by Flight Star MRO in Florida (who are also doing the scheduled CVM installations for Delta this month)

Hi All,I see it was announced late yesterday that SMN has issued 713,640 CDI's to AEM employees.
The issue included 438,961 issued for nil consideration, and 274,679 issued at $0.77/share under the employee incentive scheme.
Some may disagree, however, I personally think that schemes of this nature, so long as they are well managed, are a great incentive to employees!
I hope that the issue was taken up by as many employees as possible, and across all levels of the organization.

Cheers

SMN dropping recently on relatively small volume.
I wonder if the market perception will change once CVM installations are confirmed??
The Half Year advised "SMS and Delta Tech Ops have scheduled the first of three installations of the 757 CVM Kits beginning in March..."
Yes, it's small potatoes, but it will signal first (IMO of many) commercial CVM installation.
(I suspect the Top 20 are still acquiring shares) wink.gif

THE FAA STC HELD BY AIRBUS HELICOPTERS, INC. (AHI) IS NOW VALIDATED IN CHINA, EUROPE, CANADA, AND BRAZIL

Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp. (AEM) is pleased to advise that the supplemental type certificate (STC) count for the LSS880 (previously known as the 600W system) installation on the AS350/H125 helicopter continues to increase.
The FAA STC is held by Airbus Helicopters, Inc. (AHI), and has now been validated in China, Europe, Canada, and Brazil.

“We’re incredibly appreciative of AHI’s belief in our loudspeaker system and of their continued efforts to validate the FAA STC in other parts of the world,” said Tony Weller, AEM’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “It’s fitting that the number-one selling law enforcement helicopter in its class—worldwide—is available with the best-in-class loudspeaker system.”

AEM’s latest loudspeaker systems provide advanced features and performance, are designed, tested, and qualified to DO-160G and DO-214.

Hi All,
A some encouraging signs in the Half Year results.
In relation to B737-NG Aft Pressure Bulk Head application

"SMS continues to work diligently with the OEM and Delta Airlines to approve CVM as an alternative means of inspection in 2019, including several follow up meetings and conference calls with key senior management since the last shareholder update."
I assume the update referred to is the December quarterly released to the ASX 31/1/19.
Cheers

Hi All,Some more positive news out of AEM.
http://www.airframer.com/news_story.html?release=69387


Bombardier Global 7500 takes flight with AEM's LSA100 cabin PA amplifier

The Bombardier Aerospace G7500—one of the newest and most advanced corporate aircraft—is taking to the skies with AEM's LSA100 cabin PA amplifier on board.

Lufthansa Technik approached Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp. (AEM) to design, develop, and qualify a unique cabin PA amplifier for use with their NICE in-flight entertainment (IFE) system. NICE is the industry standard in cabin management and in-flight entertainment for VIP and business aircraft. Built for simplicity, convenience, and pleasure, the system brings high-end technology to in-flight entertainment.

Bombardier Aerospace selected Lufthansa Technik to provide the IFE and cabin PA systems; in turn, Lufthansa Technik came to AEM as their supplier of choice.

"Although the project was, at times, very complex and trying due to constantly changing requirements, the final product is something we are all very proud of," said Tony Weller, AEM's director of sales and marketing. "Lufthansa Technik is a professional organization, one we're pleased and honoured to work with."

The LSA100-100 was developed for the corporate aircraft market but is also suitable for use in small commuter aircraft, and helicopter transport applications such as those supporting the off-shore oil and gas markets.

Easy to configure and install, AEM designed the LSA100 for new and re-fit applications. Their simple, yet smart, design interface includes beneficial features and capabilities that provide easy integration with the cockpit audio system, cabin briefer, in-flight entertainment system, and existing cabin speakers.

Press release issued by Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp. on February 21, 2019

<h1 class="entry-title" id="#content" tabindex="-1">Sikorsky chooses AEM for design and manufacture projects</h1> Posted on February 19, 2019; Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Press Release [/color] [color=#000000]

Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp. (AEM) has been selected by Sikorsky to support three design and manufacture projects for unique interface boxes needed by the OEM for upgrades on its commercial helicopters.
One project is build-to-print, another is an enhanced build-to-print with AEM recommending ways to improve the product and its performance, and the third project is a full development, qualification, and manufacture effort based on Sikorsky’s technical specifications.

Before being awarded the three projects, AEM had to satisfy Sikorsky’s rigorous supplier qualification and audit requirements.

“That was no small effort,” said Tony Weller, AEM’s director of sales and marketing. “Despite already being ISO9001/AS9100 registered, we also had to implement a number of other system-wide processes and procedures to satisfy Sikorsky’s requirements fully; this speaks highly of the team we have at AEM.”
Product deliveries have started on two of the three projects, with the qualification tests for the third project scheduled for completion by the end of February 2019.

Hi All,
Just noticed the below news in relation to Sikorsky & Anodyne (AEM).

No ASX announcement, so I assume the contracts aren't considered "material" from SMN's perspective.

Whilst the size of the contract(s) might be immaterial, I sure working with Sikorsky opens others doors with access to Engineers, and key decision makers, in other areas (CVM). wink.gif

Cheers
