Flexjet LLC has received two National Air Transportation Association (NATA) awards in maintenance excellence for one of its employees and the company, the company said.
Flexjet was honored with NATA´s Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Employer Recognition Award, which recognizes aviation maintenance organizations that encourage and support aviation maintenance technician (AMT) training.
In addition, Flexjet Senior Crew Chief Jerry Marolt was awarded the ATP/NATA General Aviation Service Technician Award. This award acknowledges the exceptional performance of a licensed airframe and powerplant mechanic or radio repairman who has practiced his or her craft for a period of 20 or more years.
This is the fourth year in a row that Flexjet has been honored with the employer recognition award. This honor is based on the percentage of AMTs employed (directly or indirectly) by a maintenance organization that participated in qualified training events. An AMT must complete at least 12 hours of training each year to be counted towards the organization´s award percentage.
The National Air Transportation Association (NATA), the voice of aviation business for more than 75 years, is the public policy group representing the interests of aviation businesses before Congress and the federal agencies.
