Another Honor For Comair

Tenth Straight FAA Diamond Award

For 10 years in a row, Comair has been awarded the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) most prestigious safety honor - the Diamond Award for excellence in aviation maintenance training. Comair's 10th consecutive Diamond Award is an industry leading achievement that underscores the airline's commitment to safety and operational excellence.

"Dedication to safety is paramount at Comair, and our maintenance team is a shining example of this commitment," said Michael Stuart, senior vice president, Aircraft Operations. "We are proud to mark a decade of being recognized by the FAA for safety excellence and appreciate the hard work of our people to achieve this milestone."

At Comair, more than 60 percent of the airline's aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs) completed the continuous training required to participate in the program. Altogether, Comair AMTs completed 10,642 hours of safety, compliance and technical training.

"Comair's active participation in encouraging technicians to complete this training is a reflection of the dedication of the airline," said Mark Corrigan, FAA supervisor. "It's extremely rare for an airline to receive this honor 10 years in a row. The FAA appreciates Comair's cooperation and commitment to safety in air transportation."

Implemented in 1990, the FAA's aviation maintenance technician award program is an incentive for individual maintenance technicians to complete recurrent and initial training. To qualify for the FAA Diamond Award, at least 25 percent of an airline's eligible maintenance technicians must pass specialized, ongoing training during a 12-month period.
