AMTSociety Supports the Aerospace Maintenance Association's
Aerospace Maintenance Competition in 2014

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 the AMTSociety has held their Maintenance Skills Competition in conjunction with Cygnus Business Media's Aviation Pros LIVE annual tradeshow. Once again this year a maintenance 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 AMC is being managed by the Honorable John Goglia, former NTSB member and staunch advocate for the aircraft maintenance technician, and will be held March 25th and 26th, 2014 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. For information on the AMC and to register your team visit:

William F. "Bill" O'Brien Award for Excellence in Aircraft Maintenance

There is also an award presented to the one team from all the teams that compete that has the lowest overall score and this year that team was FedEx Team LAX! This award is called the William F. "Bill" O'Brien Award for Excellence in Aircraft Maintenance. This prestigious recognition not only comes with extra Snap-On Tools but also a trophy created and sponsored by Snap-On Industrial which consists of a bronze bust of Charles E. Taylor mounted on the top of two airfoils with polished metal supports and wire braces separating them. The glass sides are etched with the names of the five aircraft maintenance technicians who earned this wonderful award along with the name of their respective company or organization. (The previous recipients of this award are Continental Airlines '08/'09, Southwest Airlines '10/'11, United States Coast Guard '12.)

Charles E. Taylor Professional AMT Award

The AMTSociety also presents the Charles E. Taylor Professional AMT Award which is given to the single most professional looking, professional acting and highest team spirited competitors in the AMTS MSC. This year the recipient was United States Coast Guardsman AET 2 Michael Bosch from Air Station Clearwater FL. This award also has Snap-On Industrial associated with it, most notably a gold engraved open end/box end wrench mounted in a shadow box.
