Earlier this year, NATA announced a new maintenance organization honor open to any full-time aircraft and/or components maintenance or repair business or a Part 91, 121, 125, 127, 129,133, 135, 137, 141, 145, or 147 entity that conducts aviation maintenance. The NATA Aviation Maintenance Technician Employer Recognition Program awards aviation maintenance organizations that encourage and support aviation maintenance technician (AMT) training. The award is meant to complement the Federal Aviation Administration's Aviation Maintenance Technician Award, while providing a special recognition for employers that support training.
The NATA award is based on the percentage of AMTs employed, directly or indirectly, by a maintenance organization who participate in qualified training events. An AMT must complete at least 12 hours of training each year to be counted towards the organization's award percentage.
While training hour records are not due until the end of the year, we are asking everyone who is interested in participating to notify NATA as soon as possible to sign up for additional information on how to participate.
With your commitment, we can ensure that this program will be a success for many years to come.
