Charles Taylor and unmanned aerial systems


UAS Action Summit

During the recent UAS Action Summit in Grand Forks, ND, Northrop Grumman gifted a full-scale model of a Global Hawk to Northland Community and Technical College Foundation. It will be used in the college's new UAS maintenance training program.

Charles Taylor and AMT

The staff of AMT was recently honored by a visit from Charles Taylor II, the great grandson of the father of aircraft maintenance. We reminisced about his great-grandfather, the FAA’s Master Mechanic Award that bears his name, and the First Flight Centennial Celebration of 2003.

Charles Taylor Award

The Seattle Flight Standards District Office recently presented the Charles Taylor Award to Jerry Weiler of Port Angeles, WA. He worked for William Fairchild from July 1959 as a mechanic in exchange for his flight training. With his on-the-job training, he received his Powerplant rating in 1962 and Airframe rating in 1963.
