Happy AMT Day!
05/24/18 - AMFA
Happy Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Day! This is a special day to recognize the skilled men and women who maintain aircraft with knowledge, skill, and integrity. May 24 was chosen for AMT Day in honor and recognition of the Father of Aviation Maintenance – Charles E. Taylor's. Everyone knows who the Wright brothers are, but not many know there was a third man who contributed to the first powered flight. Without Charles Taylor’s knowledge and skill, that airplane would never have gotten off the ground. Recognizing Charles E. Taylor for his impact on aviation allows us to remember how our craft began as well as our craft’s continued dedication to safety.
