25th Anniversary & Demonstration Day June 2014

AMS celebrated 25 years of serving the aviation industry with an impressive day of celebration and demonstrations at Cotswold Airport on 17th June. Guests arrived from all points of the globe as AMS hosted representatives from the world’s airlines, airport authorities and military air forces.

After being greeted by the AMS team guests were entertained in a marquee and saw some of AMS’s most iconic equipment in action, including the aircraft lifting airbags that established their international reputation, through to the fuselage lifting system and new 50 tonne turntable (the most recent innovation produced by the company).
