The AMTSociety also presents the Charles E. Taylor Professional AMT Award which is given to the single most professional looking, professional acting and highest team spirited competitors in the AMTS MSC. This year the recipient was United States Coast Guardsman AET 2 Michael Bosch from Air Station Clearwater FL. This award also has Snap-On Industrial associated with it, most notably a gold engraved open end/box end wrench mounted in a shadow box.
Of the 14 challenging events that were competed in this year, all had tools that were presented to the team with the lowest score in that particular event. The AMTSociety would like to thank the following companies for their generosity for donating tools:
Snap-On Tools, DeWALT, SK Professional Hand Tools, Stanley Proto, ProBuilt Professional Lighting, Noise Buster Head Sets, David Clark Headsets, Top Flight Watches, Shure-Step Safety Step Stools, Bennette Desihn Group, Leatherman, Led Lenser, Crane Aerospace & Electronics, Protective Industrial Products, Silvertronic, Kennedy Tools, and Virgin America.
Redstone College provided commemorative lanyards and PPG provided 2013 AMTS MSC Challenge Coins. Snap-On also provided commemorative ratcheting screwdrivers to all of the AMT/AMEs and students who competed.
The 2013 AMTS MSC continued the tradition of providing a world class venue for the knowledge, skill and integrity of today’s AMTs to be showcased in. But the AMTS MSC would not be challenging and exciting if not for the companies that sponsored events to be competed in. The AMTSociety would like to thank the following companies for their support:
CAE, FedEx, Aircraft Maintenance Technicians Association, Alaska Airlines, Boeing, PPG Aerospace, DFW Instrument Corporation, Alberth Aviation, ATP, Nida Corporation, Fluid Power Training Institute, Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, Redstone College, and AirDat.
The AMTS MSC grows each year and the level of competition rises with each new event and team. The best of the best in the aircraft maintenance profession come to not only compete against each other but to also stand together and help show the public who the true “Faces Behind Safety” are. If you would like to join the competition or just come and attend we would be happy to have you!
