Team Southwest Airlines and Team Alaska Airlines, both AMFA represented carriers, won 1st and 3rd place respectively in the Commercial Aviation Category - congratulations!
The 2015 Aerospace Maintenance Competition (AMC) was held last week in Miami, Florida during the Aviation Week MRO Americas Convention. A multitude of teams competed in six different competition categories. There were aircraft maintenance technician teams from all over the world, from as far away as China, Australia, and New Zealand.
The teams competed in sixteen scheduled and timed events over the course of two days and when the final scores were tallied, the Southwest Airlines team came in 1st place. The Alaska Airlines team continued their winning streak when they placed 3rd, which matched their showing in last year’s event.
Congratulations are in order for all of the teams that competed and AMFA was proud to be one of the event’s sponsors. The Aircraft Maintenance Competition provides a stage to highlight the knowledge, skill, and integrity that is the foundation of today’s and tomorrow’s AMTs. By providing a stage that showcases these principles of the AMT craft and profession, the AMC helps raise awareness of the training and skills needed for providing safe, airworthy aircraft worldwide. While at the event, AMFA also presented a $2,500 scholarship to our 2015 selectee, Mr. Kyle Johnson, an A&P student attending Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Congratulations Kyle!
