INDIANAPOLIS - Eagle Creek Aviation Services, a leading provider of aircraft services and sales, announced today that it has received the AMT Diamond Award of Excellence from the FAA for participating in the Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program. This is the third consecutive year that Eagle Creek Aviation Services has won this prestigious award.
It was presented to Eagle Creek on March 6, 2014, in Indianapolis by the FAA's Flight Standards District Office (FSDO).
In addition, over 30 Eagle Creek technicians received individual Bronze or Silver AMT Certificates of Training from the FAA for completing eligible aviation maintenance training. One hundred percent of Eagle Creek Aviation Services' technicians had to earn individual awards for 2013 in order for the company to receive the Diamond Award.
Eagle Creek Aviation Services spent over 1,000 man-hours on training in 2013. Training ranged from formal instruction to on-the-job training and was carefully tracked and submitted to the FAA. In addition to core training conducted online, Eagle Creek also provided training through factory courses and on-the-job training. Content included aircraft operations, run/taxi qualifying and specialized instruction. The company is engaged in further training this year in order to earn the award for 2014.
"We're honored to be recognized by the FAA again for the investment we make in training our technical team," said Eagle Creek CEO Matt Hagans.
