AMTA Update

The AMTA will be sponsoring our Charles E. Taylor Event at the upcoming Aerospace Maintenance Competition in Orlando this April 9th - 12th held during the MRO Americas Trade Show. This will be the AMTA's 10th year sponsoring this event which consists of a written, multiple choice exam on Charles Taylor. If you would like to attend this exciting event and cheer on the competitors you can register for free at


 As frustrating as it is the AMTA is still waiting to hear back from the Office of Vice-President Mike Pence on our request for a Letter of Recognition from the White House that recognizes May 24th as AMT Day. This letter will be a companion to the US Congressional and US Senate AMT Day Resolutions. Once we receive word back we will let everyone know.


 We are still actively accepting donations for our next bronze bust donation which is destined for the US Army Aviation Museum. If you would like to make a donation you can do so though our GoFundMe account at Once our goal of raising the $6000.00 needed to purchase the bust arrangements will be made for an official donation. No donation is too small or too large. Even a $5.00 donation gets us closer to promoting the "father of aircraft maintenance".


Recently the AMTA was invited to speak at Career Day at Correia Middle School on March 8th. Thank you to Lucas Costanza for the invitation to  have the AMTA talk about Charles Taylor and what it takes to be an Aircraft Maintenance Technician. We handed out AMTA stickers and showed a time lapsed video of an American Airlines 777 engine change. There were 4 separate 30 minute classes with 20 students in each session. It was rewarding to be able to educate young students about our skilled craft & profession.


 As always, thank you for your support in the AMTA!
