FAA Presents Top Aviation Award to AAR for Excellence in Training
The Diamond Certificate of Excellence, the highest honor in the FAA's Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program, recognizes organizations that meet or exceed the FAA's requirements for technical and regulatory training. For the second consecutive year, 100% of AAR's FAA-certified repair stations received the FAA's Diamond Award along with special recognition for 100% of each facility's eligible aviation maintenance technicians participating in the program.
"We are again honored to receive this award recognizing our 1,171 technicians for their dedication to training and our organization for its commitment to safety of flight and airworthiness," said David Storch, AAR's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Achieving 100 percent participation across the Company demonstrates the dedication of AAR's worldwide team of Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) to maintaining sharp skills and applying the most current information the industry has to offer. In the end, this ongoing commitment to training results in the highest levels of quality and ensures the greatest safety for the flying public."
"This is a very important milestone for AAR, given that they have nearly doubled the number of participants since last year," said Rick Domingo, Assistant Manager, Flight Standards Service for the FAA. "AAR has taken a leadership role in the 2005 AMT Award Program and this is no small achievement."
