Congratulations to this year’s winners of the AMT Next Gen 40 Under 40 Awards. It is their passion for the industry that keeps aviation strong, exciting and above all else – safe. The winners come from all segments of the industry, just like the segments we feature in each issue of Aircraft Maintenance Technology. Whether they come from general aviation, business aviation, antique aircraft, rotocraft, military, airline, education, executive management, or maintenance, these individuals have one thing in common - a love for, and a respect for the industry and the importance of what they do.
Some winners grew up near an airport and fell in love with the sound an aircraft makes as it swooshes on by, some were influenced by family members in the business, and others were drawn to exploring how machinery works and ended up in aviation by chance. Whatever the path they have chosen, these winners landed here, with us, in aircraft maintenance - and what a great place to be.
As you read the descriptions, we hope you are encouraged to promote the industry as well, and give back to tomorrow’s leaders either through speaking to students, hands-on training, mentoring, or promoting the importance of aircraft maintenance as the aviation sector continues to grow around the world. And keep AMT's Next Gen Awards in mind when it comes time to nominate candidates for next year’s winners.
Aircraft Maintenance Technology is proud to announce this year’s 2019 AMT Next Gen 40 Under 40 Award winners:
