The Aerospace Maintenance Competition will be held March 25 and 26, 2014 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

To better serve its entire membership and to enhance future offerings, the AMTSociety is proud to lend its support to the Aerospace Maintenance Competition, presented by the Aerospace Maintenance Association in 2014.

Over the past six years AMTSociety has held its Maintenance Skills Competition in conjunction with Cygnus Business Media’s AviationPros LIVE annual tradeshow. Once again this year a maintenance skills competition will take place at this event but will be organized and managed by the newly formed Aerospace Maintenance Association with support of Cygnus Business Media, Snap-On Tool Corporation and the AMTSociety.

The Aerospace Maintenance Competition is a friendly but competitive event for teams of certificated Aircraft Maintenance Technicians, Aircraft Maintenance Engineers and students enrolled in either FAA, EASA, CASA or equivalently authorized schools as well as personnel of any country’s Armed Forces that are involved in the aircraft maintenance and spacecraft maintenance field. The AMC is an opportunity for today’s and tomorrow’s skilled Aviation Maintenance Professionals to test their combined abilities against those of their peers.

The AMC is being managed by the Honorable John Goglia, former NTSB member and staunch advocate for the aircraft maintenance technician.

Ronald Donner, executive director of AMTSociety, says, “A maintenance competition has always been a key offering of AMTSociety and its important the aircraft maintenance community continues to be provided such an event. This competition showcases the many talents needed for aircraft maintenance students and professionals to maintain the safe aircraft we all enjoy flying on. Collaboration with like-thinking people and organizations from the industry ensures the continuation of these types of events. We are very pleased to support the new AMC.”

John Goglia says, “This is an exciting opportunity to add to the existing success of the competition to support the recognition for the profession of the aircraft maintenance technician. Moving forward our two groups will synergize our efforts to produce the highest quality event which brings us together to highlight their professionalism and safety used in maintaining aircraft today.”

Michael Sasso, show director for AviationPros LIVE and AMTSociety board member, says, “As a second generation aircraft maintenance technician, I am proud to be continuing the tradition of hosting this outstanding and spirited event in conjunction with AviationPros LIVE bringing even more teams and a greater excitement level to the expo event.”
