Yellowknife, Jan. 31, 2013 – Top Aces Inc. (“Top Aces”) announced that, effective February 1, 2013, it will be changing its name to Discovery Air Defence Services Inc. (“Defence Services”). The change is being made to better reflect Top Aces’ relationship to its parent company, Discovery Air Inc. (“Discovery Air”), and to better convey the full range of capabilities offered by Defence Services. The ‘Top Aces’ brand will be retained and remain visible in select markets.
Concurrent with the name change, all business development activities previously carried on by Discovery Air Innovations Inc. will be transferred to Defence Services. Didier Toussaint, Group President, Government Services of Discovery Air stated, “Discovery Air Defence Services will be providing the same safe, reliable and highly-skilled services for which Top Aces is known. The new name reflects how we have grown over the past six years as a member of the Discovery Air group of companies.”
The Top Aces website will be replaced by a new Defence Services website at www.discoveryair-ds.com, and all e-mail addresses will be changed to the Discovery Air format for consistency with the Discovery Air brand (email@example.com).
