For a hands-on opportunity to learn about the latest aircraft maintenance products and services, AMT and AMTSociety are partners with Aviation Industry Expo. Next year’s show promises to be THE aircraft maintenance event of the year, and will take place March 18-20 at the Dallas Convention Center. In addition to new product information, Aviation Industry Expo gives attendees the opportunity to obtain IA renewal credits, sit in on professional development and technical seminars, and network with industry peers. If you are considering going to the show, you may want to get there a day early. AMTSociety will be hosting a golf tournament on Monday, March 17. All proceeds from the tournament will benefit the AMTSociety scholarships program. For more information about Aviation Industry Expo visit AviationIndustryExpo.com.
