Airborne Maintenance & Engineering Services Honored with Governor Rick Scott Job Creator Award

Airborne Maintenance & Engineering Services, a wholly owned subsidiary
of Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATSG), was honored at the
Enterprise Florida board meeting with the Job Creator Award presented by
Board Chair Stan Connally on behalf of Governor Rick Scott’s office.

Airborne provides Maintenance Repair & Overhaul services at their Tampa,
Florida location to a who’s who list of cargo and passenger airlines.
With a strong workforce exceeding 450—a majority of those being skilled
technician positions—the company is on track to add more than 100
positions in 2018 at its 320,000 sq. ft. two-hangar facility at the
Tampa International Airport. This workforce expansion is due to the
commitment to further develop Airborne-Tampa as a premier MRO
destination for airlines.

The same facility is home to Airborne’s industry-leading B737
passenger-to-freighter conversion provider, Pemco Conversions, which
offers over 26 freighter platforms and is currently preparing the
first-of-its-kind B737-700 FlexCombiTM for STC approval.

“This award validates the addition of a Florida-based growth-oriented
MRO location for Airborne Maintenance & Engineering Services,” said
Airborne President Brady Templeton, who accepted the award during the
event at the Westshore Grand Hotel. “We value the opportunity to
contribute to the Tampa community through skilled job growth and look
forward to additional programs that attract new talent to aviation
maintenance.”
