How to get Adobe Air 3.x apps running on Kindle Fire?

Our latest app is written using Air 3.0, and runs seamlessly on other Android devices. It does not run on Kindle Fire (KF is pre-loaded with Air 2.7 and is not upgradeable to more recent Air versions). What do we need to do so our Air 3.0 app can run on Kindle Fire? Thank you in advance for guidance.

Adobe AIR version 2.7.1 is pre-installed on Kindle Fire (1st Generation); Adobe AIR version 3.1 is pre-installed on the all-new Kindle Fire and the Kindle Fire HD tablets. You can publish Adobe AIR 3 apps for the Kindle Fire tablets by packaging them as "captive runtime" apps. However, these captive runtime apps will not support on-device debugging.

Thank you very much Paul. Our understanding is that this significantly increases size of app but doesn't hinder performance. Regardless, this appears to be the best solution. Thank you again.
