The Diamond Award Is The FAA's Highest Level Award For
Skytech, a dealers for new and pre-owned, high-end, owner-flown
and business-level aircraft, has received the 2009 Award of
Excellence "Diamond Award" ... the highest level award in the FAA's
Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards program. The awards are
issued yearly based on the training received in a calendar year.
Skytech's Rock Hill service facility has received the award
continuously since 2006 and was the only maintenance provider in
South Carolina to receive the award in 2009.
"We are honored that the dedication and hard work of our
technicians is recognized by the FAA each year," said John K.
Foster, President of Skytech Inc. "At Skytech, we rely on building
strong and lasting customer relationships, a strong commitment to
customer service and a firm belief that providing the very best in
sales support and service means continued business success."
Through its Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Awards
program, the FAA recognizes employers and technicians who
"participate aggressively in available initial and recurrent
maintenance training courses…and receive or promote and
foster initial and recurrent training". To qualify for the
"Diamond Award" an employer must be involved full-time in the
business of maintaining or repairing aircraft and/or component
parts or appliances and have at least three full-time AMTs. A
"Diamond Award" recipient must have 100% of its eligible employees
receive an individual AMT Certificate of Training. This level of
participation demonstrates Skytech's mission to provide owners with
a first-class maintenance experience through employees and
practices that are second to none.
