NATA Now Accepting Applications for the 2023 AMT Employer Award Program

Washington, DC, April 18, 2023 – The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) announced today that the application period for the 2023 Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Employer Award Program is now open through July 15, 2023.

The NATA AMT award program is designed to recognize companies that employ aviation maintenance technicians and encourage and support AMT training. The award is based on the percentage of AMTs who participate in qualifying training events.

“NATA is proud to offer this award as recognition for the organizations dedicated to advancing AMT learning and cultivating a strong safety culture,” said NATA Managing Director of Member Services and Engagement Alexandra Brendel. “Aviation maintenance technicians are instrumental in the success of aviation businesses. We hope that this program helps deliver that message and inspires others to join these forward-thinking companies within the aviation business community.”

The AMT Employer Awards, along with the Industry Excellence Awards, will be presented at NATA’s Aviation Business Conference in early November at the Westin Long Beach in Long Beach, California. For more information on the program, or to download an application packet, click here.
