Wilbur and Orville Wright got all the attention, but aircraft maintenance technicians know they’d have never gotten off the ground without Charles Taylor. So every year we celebrate the birthday of the man who built the Wright Flyer engine from scratch in just six weeks.
The FAA now has designated May 24 as AMT day. In Spring 2015, FlightSafety Maintenance Learning Centers in Savannah and Wichita both held ceremonies in honor of the day, part of a growing tradition to acknowledge the contributions of aircraft maintenance technicians.
Schedule your training in 2016 during the week of May 24 and take part in our celebration.
