Calgary, Alberta – December 8, 2011 – AeroMechanical Services Ltd. (TSX-V: AMA) (the “Company” or “AMA”) is pleased to announce it has received a patent from the European Patent Office for the Aircraft Flight Data Management System. AMA owns all its patents outright and with the receipt of this patent, AMA has patents for its products and services on three continents.

The patent covers AMA’s signature trademarked product, the Automated Flight Information Reporting System (“AFIRSTM”). The first patent for this product was received in April 2007 from the United States Patent and Trademark office and a subsequent Certificate of Invention Patent from China was announced in a news release on June 1, 2011. Generally, other countries accept patent rights from Europe and theUnited States in their own jurisdictions.

“We are very pleased to receive the European patent,” saidBill Tempany, CEO of AeroMechanical Services. “With many of this year’s contracts fromEurope, we are glad to have this security for our products in the European market. We will closely monitor these jurisdictions and will enforce our rights to the technology should competitors infringe on our patent.”

The European patent relates to the delivery of data from airborne hardware through ground-based infrastructure and covers everything that AMA currently provides its clients.

About AFIRS

AMA’s Automated Flight Information Reporting System (“AFIRS”) is installed on aircraft and monitors hundreds of essential functions from the plane and the black box. AFIRS sends that information to the UpTimeTM Server on the ground, which stores and transfers the data to the airline in real-time. Airlines can use this information to increase passenger safety, improve productivity, maximize efficiency and enhance profitability. In addition to its data monitoring functions, AFIRS provides voice and text messaging capabilities that give pilots the ability to communicate with ground support. AMA offers global satellite coverage, providing service to whoever needs it, when they need it, anywhere on the planet.
