Williams honoured as Master Mechanic by FAA
On 13 September Glenn Alan Williams became an FAA Master Mechanic. He has served the industry for half a century, and all his colleagues testify that when they run into an issue, he's the man with a solution.
C&L mechanic Glenn Alan Williams has received the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award after a staggering 50 years of industry service.

C&L Aviation Services employee Glenn Alan Williams has received the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award from the FAA, an honour bestowed on aviation mechanics who have reached 50 years of aviation service with at least 30 being as a certified A&P. The award is named in honour of Taylor, the first aviation mechanic in powered flight and the person credited with designing and building the engine for the Wright Brothers' first successful aircraft.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Glenn for over 10 years,” says C&L director of maintenance Phil Miholovich. “Throughout that time, he has consistently been the go-to voice of reason and the one who is relied upon to make things happen. If you ask any of Glenn's peers for their thoughts about him, the resounding answer is that they have the utmost respect for him.”

Williams joined C&L when the company acquired Telford Aviation in 2010, where he had been employed since 2008. Williams also worked parts of his career with American Eagle Airways, Northeast Express Regional and Continental Express. He also served as a flight engineer and mechanic for the US Navy from 1968 to 1988.

“I am amazed that even to this day, after so many years of dedication to aviation, Glenn still takes time to impart life lessons to those around him,” Miholovich continues. “How he carries himself, his outlook on life and his desire to succeed are all inspiring.”

The FAA was at C&L on 13 September to present Williams with his certificate, plaque and pin in front of a hangar filled with his peers. The FAA also presented a spouse pin to his wife Lillian.
