We Have A Winner!

I would like to congratulate Banyan Air Service on winning our annual Readers in Action contest! The maintenance technicians hard at work featured on the cover of this issue was submitted by Banyan Air Service located at Ft. Lauderdale Executive Airport, keep up the hard work guys!

After a long year with many interesting events and stories in the news about aviation and our economic situation we are finally able to look forward to a new beginning. As everyone takes on new tasks and bigger roles throughout aviation it is important to keep your head up and even more important, keep the passion. We’re in this business because we love it and the obstacles we face each day are ever changing. Maintenance technicians are the positive force that keeps the world flying, join in and be heard!
