William O'Brien Trophy for Aviation Tech Excellence

Feb. 14, 2013
Presented during this year’s AMTSociety Maintenance Skills Competition

The AMTSociety has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Snap-on. For those of you that have attended the AMTSociety Maintenance Skills Competition, held in conjunction with Aviation Pros LIVE (former Cygnus Aviation Expo) you have seen the Snap-on presence.

This year at Aviation Pros LIVE’13 held March 13 and 14 in Las Vegas, NE, the William O'Brien Trophy for Aviation Tech Excellence will be presented by Snap-on, and will be bestowed to the team with the overall winning score from the Maintenance Skills Competition. This prestigious award will be on display in the winning team’s facility for a year. The late William O’Brien was a popular figure in the FAA, advocating for the profession, safety, and professionalism wherever he went. For years Bill’s no-nonsense messages graced the pages of AMT Magazine.

A well-deserved thank you goes to all of the sponsors and supporters of current and the next-generation of aircraft maintenance technicians.
