ARSA Asks for Clarification on AMT Awards Program

On Nov. 8, ARSA sent a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) seeking clarification of Advisory Circular (AC) 65-25(D), “Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Awards Program.” ARSA specifically requested that the agency acknowledge that regulatory compliance training courses developed and provided under 14 CFR part 145 approved training programs are conducted by “persons acceptable to the FAA.” Currently, individuals who normally would conduct such training courses are not specifically designated as “persons acceptable to the FAA,” thus some Aviation Safety Inspectors have excluded such training from consideration under the awards program.

The AMT Awards Program began in 1992; it was updated in February 2007, via AC 45-25D. The stated goal is to provide incentive to employees and employers to “participate aggressively in available initial and recurrent maintenance/training courses.” The FAA issues over 20,000 awards annually.
