Sikorsky Helicopter Support Services Division Awarded FAA Diamond Award

Fourth Year In A Row For The Prestigious Designation

The Services Division of Sikorsky's Helicopter Support, Inc. (HSI) has won the FAA Diamond Certificate of Excellence award for the fourth year in a row, the company announced Monday. The award is given to employers with 100 percent employee participation in a FAA-approved aviation maintenance training program.
 
The Diamond Award Certificate of Excellence is the Federal Aviation Administration's highest training award. The FAA recognizes employers and aviation maintenance technicians who participate in a training program that offers both initial and recurrent aviation maintenance training/courses to improve safety and technical knowledge. 
 
"Training is a priority in our business and this award is a testimony to our collective commitment to our customers. We are very proud and honored to be recognized by the FAA for our accomplishments again this year," said Samir Mehta, HSI President.
 
The program also honors individuals for their personal achievements. For the first time this year, the FAA individual recognition for aviation maintenance technicians ranges from Bronze to Gold, with Gold being the highest honor for an employee. Four HSI technicians received the Gold award, 43 earned Silver and 21 earned Bronze. In 2009, HSI service technicians completed a total of 11,265 hours in product-specific helicopter instruction, safety and FAA regulatory compliance training.
 
"As we strive for continuous improvement, this award strengthens our commitment to training, quality and safety. Our employees work hard to advance their personal growth and we are proud of these individual recognitions," said Anthony Yacoviello, Vice President, HSI Services.
