Skytech Receives 2009 FAA Award of Excellence
The Diamond Award is the highest level award in the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards
Rock Hill, South Carolina, April 28, 2010 — Skytech, Inc., one of the world’s premier authorized dealers for new and pre-owned, high-end, owner-flown and business-level aircraft, has received the 2009 Award of Excellence “Diamond Award” — the highest level award in the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards program. The awards are issued yearly based on the training received in a calendar year. Skytech’s Rock Hill service facility has received the award continuously since 2006 and was the only maintenance provider in South Carolina to receive the award in 2009.
“We are honored that the dedication and hard work of our technicians is recognized by the FAA each year,” said John K. Foster, President of Skytech Inc. “At Skytech, we rely on building strong and lasting customer relationships, a strong commitment to customer service and a firm belief that providing the very best in sales support and service means continued business success.”
Through its Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Awards program, the FAA recognizes employers and technicians who “participate aggressively in available initial and recurrent maintenance training courses…and receive or promote and foster initial and recurrent training”. To qualify for the “Diamond Award” an employer must be involved full-time in the business of maintaining or repairing aircraft and/or component parts or appliances and have at least three full-time AMTs. A “Diamond Award” recipient must have 100% of its eligible employees receive an individual AMT Certificate of Training. This level of participation demonstrates Skytech’s mission to provide owners with a first-class maintenance experience through employees and practices that are second to none.
