Hawker Beechcraft Services Earns FAA Maintenance Award

Nearly 500 Technicians Also Honored With Individual Awards

Hawker Beechcraft Services (HBS) has announced that its factory-owned service centers received the FAA's coveted Diamond Award. HBS maintenance centers in Little Rock, Tampa, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Wichita, Houston, and San Antonio, met the requirements for the FAA's highest distinction for excellence in aircraft maintenance training. Year after year, HBS consistently earns various FAA maintenance achievements.

"HBS service centers and technicians have participated in and earned honors from the FAA's Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program for many years," said William (Bill) Brown, president, Hawker Beechcraft Global Customer Service and Support. "We have the most skilled, highly trained and dedicated work force in the industry. We're pleased that our technicians' hard work and commitment to recurrent training is honored each year."
 
To achieve a Diamond Award, a facility must have 100 percent of its employees participating in the FAA's Maintenance Technician Program. Individuals can receive a Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby or individual Diamond Award. The awards are based on the number of hours of FAA-approved aviation maintenance training received throughout the year. In order to qualify for a Diamond Award, for example, an individual must have 100 combined hours of college related classes and FAA approved training during the calendar year.
