Eagle Creek Aviation Services Earns AMT Employer Diamond Award of Excellence for FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program

Eagle Creek Aviation Services, a leading provider of aircraft services, and new and used aircraft sales, announced today that it has received the prestigious AMT Employer Diamond Award of Excellence from the FAA for participating in the Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program.

The award was presented to Eagle Creek on March 13, 2013, in Indianapolis by the FAA’s Flight Standards District Office (FSDO).

In addition, all Eagle Creek technicians received individual Bronze or Silver AMT Certificates of Training from the FAA for completing eligible aviation maintenance training. One hundred percent of Eagle Creek Aviation Services’ technicians had to earn individual awards for 2012 in order for the company to receive the Diamond Award.

Eagle Creek Aviation Services spent 1,217 man-hours on training in 2012. Training ranged from formal instruction to on-the-job training and was carefully tracked and submitted to the FAA. The company is engaged in further training this year in order to earn the award for 2013.

“I’m impressed and deeply gratified by all the work our technical team put into this program,” said Eagle Creek CEO Matt Hagans. “We take a team approach to maintenance training, and the Diamond Award demonstrates that our staff of professionals is committed to do what is in our customers’ best interest.”

“We’re excited to be validated by the FAA for our focus on safety through aviation maintenance,” Hagans said.
