Charles Taylor Bust, Database to Honor Award Recipients

In the coming weeks, the Aviation Maintenance Technicians Association (AMTA) will donate a bust of Charles E. Taylor, the “father of aviation maintenance,” to the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Museum.

A kiosk containing a database of past recipients of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award, which recognizes the lifetime accomplishments of senior mechanics, will accompany the bust to raise public awareness of the men and women who have led successful careers in the aviation maintenance industry.

AMTA is currently collecting biographies and pictures of past recipients to include in the database. If you have received the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award, please send your bio and a picture to: Ken MacTiernan, Director AMTA, 11772 Carmel Creek Road #107, San Diego, CA 92130, or send an email to jetdr@san.rr.com. Family members of recipients who have passed away are also encouraged to forward the winners’ biographical information to the address above.
