Third time NATA winner leads in AMT training
This is the third time in a row that Constant Aviation has received the NATA Aviation Maintenance Technician Employer Recognition Award. This requires every staff member to complete 12 hours of training a year.
The Aviation Maintenance Technician Employer Recognition Award is bestowed by NATA.

Full-service MRO Constant Aviation has been awarded a NATA Aviation Maintenance Technician Employer Recognition Award for 2019, for the third consecutive year. Winners were announced during the awards presentation luncheon held in conjunction with the NATA Annual Meeting and Aviation Business Conference in the US.

Recognised as the highest achievable award in the NATA programme, the accolade requires that 100 per cent of a company's eligible AMT employees complete a minimum of 12 hours of qualified safety and/or maintenance related training each calendar year. This award highlights companies that encourage and support aviation maintenance technician training and is based on the percentage of AMTs that participate in specific training events.

“As our organisation continues to grow, it amazes me that we have pulled together the efforts of over 400 AMTs in our network to obtain this prestigious award for the third year in a row,” states VP of quality, safety and training Kent Stauffer. “The training initiative in the aviation industry is ever-evolving, and we believe that devoting time for our AMTs to participate in various technical training events, both internally and externally, enhances each individual professionally, makes us a best-in-class provider and builds a happier, healthier and safer workplace.”
