SAVANNAH, Ga., August 25, 2009 — The Gulfstream Aerospace service center in Long Beach, Calif., recently received the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 2008 Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Diamond Certificate of Excellence Award. It is the ninth consecutive year the facility has been recognized with the honor.
In addition, Gulfstream Long Beach employees earned two Diamond, 60 Ruby, 19 Gold, 50 Silver and 17 Bronze awards for individuals.
“Gulfstream Long Beach continues to uphold our company’s standards in product support,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “Its ninth consecutive FAA Diamond Certificate of Excellence Award and its employees’ individual awards exemplify our commitment to our customers and their aircraft.”
The AMT program was established in 1992 to recognize FAA-certified aviation mechanics and their employers for participating in supplemental aviation training and other continuing-education courses.
The Diamond Certificate of Excellence is the higher of the FAA’s two award levels for employers. It is awarded to organizations with 100 percent participation in the FAA’s maintenance training program. Examples of approved training include FAA and industry training seminars, and on-the-job technical training or college-level courses in science, mathematics or management.
