Eloy, AZ – February 6, 2014 – From team headquarters, Team Chambliss announced Dallas Airmotive as Team Sponsor for the upcoming 2014 Red Bull Air Race season. “Dallas Airmotive is proud to sponsor Team Chambliss as they chase a third World Championship on the Red Bull Air Race circuit. The team’s planning, focus and unbridled will to win combine to deliver precision in performance that all of us can aspire to in our daily lives whether at work or play. At Dallas Airmotive, we share the Team Chambliss spirit to perform right from the start,” said Dallas Airmotive President, Doug Meador.  Kirby Chambliss said, “The professionalism, dedication, drive to excel and quick response time mirrors my philosophy.  We are excited to partner with Dallas Airmotive as we push hard to win a third World Championship this year.”

Dallas Airmotive has dedicated itself to engine service for more than 80 years, founded in 1932 at Dallas Love Field.  One of the world’s largest independent repair and overhaul companies for small gas turbine engines, they provide service for the majority of turbine powered business aircraft flying today with support that extends to every corner of the globe, making them a perfect fit for the international Red Bull Air Race World Championship.  Dallas Airmotive combines high-tech satellite connectivity and state of the art technologies to deliver ultra fast support to grounded aircraft and return them to service as quickly as possible.  Their motto says it all: “Right from the start.  There when you need us.” 

“Kirby Chambliss is a model of coolness under pressure.  We can relate to that.  At Dallas Airmotive, we know the pressure of deadlines when an aircraft operator needs to get back in the air in a hurry.  He relies on us to do the job right the first time, every time.  That’s why we chose Kirby and Team Chambliss, coolness under pressure.  It’s what sets apart the winners and why at Dallas Airmotive we say Right from the Start. There When You Need Us,” stated Doug Meador.
