Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) April 18, 2006
The national aviation maintenance training award was presented to AIM for extraordinary participation in the Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) training program and the college’s commitment to aviation safety. The AMT Awards program was established in 1992 to recognize FAA certified aviation mechanics and their employers for participating in extracurricular aviation maintenance training and other continuing education courses.
“We are thrilled to present this award to Aviation Institute of Maintenance. Participation in the training program is good for students and staff alike. This opportunity to be actively involved in the national effort to increase aviation safety and training puts students on the right track. They are beginning to build real professionalism and are establishing a progression of continuing improvement that will carry them throughout their aviation maintenance careers,” said Lewis Owens, Safety Program Manager at the Indianapolis Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) of the FAA, “We look forward to the continuing contributions to aviation safety from the staff and students of Aviation Institute of Maintenance.”
The FAA’s recognition of AIM is well deserved. With more than 300 years of combined experience and thousands of cumulative training hours each year, AIM’s instructors are notable contributors to the aviation maintenance industry. The industry consistently benefits from companies like AIM that pledge continued improvement of aviation safety through education.

This award reflects our instructors’ dedication to safety and continuing commitment to training excellence.
