 |  Press Releases

AeroGuard Flight Training Center’s repair station and its aircraft interiors & maintenance services have both received the FAA Diamond Award of Excellence, the highest honor in the FAA AMT Award Program, for 2019.

This is the second year in a row the repair station has accepted the Award and the first for aircraft interiors & maintenance services, a new team formed at AeroGuard in 2018.

The Award recognizes aircraft maintenance organizations committed to ongoing improvement with effective aviation training programs that surpass the FAA regulatory standards. The Diamond Award, among the Bronze, Silver and Gold Award, is reserved for organizations in which 100% of all mechanics, repairmen and technicians earned an AMT Certificate of Training in 2019. This means that all 40+ AeroGuard maintenance employees completed a minimum of 12 hours of additional training in subject areas like aircraft systems, workplace safety and regulatory compliance.

Director of Maintenance, Shawn Rockey, who has been instrumental in the maintenance program’s success commented,

“The AeroGuard Maintenance team is honored to receive this Award for the second year in a row. Our staff understands the importance of safety, quality and professionalism, and the Award is a testament to their hard work and dedication.”

Participating in the AMT Awards Program demonstrates AeroGuard’s commitment to safety, ensuring all aircraft in the fleet are in exceptional, flight-ready condition, helping students to progress through their training program quickly, safely and efficiently on their way to careers as commercial airline pilots.

From AeroGuard CEO Joel Davidson:

“Safety is essential to our core values at AeroGuard. We are honored to receive these two prestigious awards from the FAA and will continue to work toward making AeroGuard the safest and highest quality choice for flight training.”

AeroGuard’s accelerated Pilot Pathway Program makes it incredibly important for aircraft to be readily accessible to students as necessary. The around-the-clock maintenance team’s relentless contributions have played a significant part in the students’ success.
