Global Aircraft Solutions Inc. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Hamilton Aerospace Technologies Inc. (HAT), has been awarded, for the fourth consecutive year, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) "Diamond Certificate of Excellence" for maintenance training. The Diamond Certificate of Excellence is the FAA's highest maintenance honor, designed to encourage aviation maintenance technicians and their employers to participate in initial and recurrent training programs.

John Sawyer, president of Global Aircraft Solutions and Hamilton Aerospace, stated, "Although our aircraft trading and parts sales business segments continue to constitute our greatest growth opportunities, those same business opportunities are based upon the strong technological capabilities that HAT brings to our business model. In that context, it is very satisfying to receive reconfirmation from the Federal Aviation Administration that, for the fourth year in a row, we are not only meeting, but also exceeding their regulatory standards."

Global Aircraft Solutions trades in commercial jet aircraft and provides parts support and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for commercial aircraft to scheduled and charter airlines and aviation leasing companies. Hamilton Aerospace and World Jet, both divisions of Global Aircraft Solutions, operate from adjacent facilities comprising about 35 acres located at Tucson International Airport. These facilities include hangars, workshops, warehouses, offices and other buildings. Notable customers include AerCap, BCI Aircraft Leasing, Q Aviation, Falcon Air Express, Jetran International, Goodrich Corp., AAR, National Jet Systems, Pemco, San Antonio Aerospace, Pegasus Aviation, Shaheen Airlines, Iraqi Airways and Aero California.
