MCLEAN, Va. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- DynCorp International has earned the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) prestigious Diamond Award for Excellence in five programs for the second consecutive year. The programs awarded include:
The FAA’s Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Award program is based on the commitment of maintenance technicians to improve safety by actively participating in initial and recurring training programs to further their technical knowledge. The Diamond Award is the highest corporate award, and the program includes both individual and corporate recognition.
The award recognizes completion by 100-percent of an organization’s eligible maintenance technicians of specialized, continuous training in aircraft systems, regulations and FAA rules over a 12-month period. In addition to the Diamond Award, which is presented to the company, each mechanic receives an Aviation Maintenance Technician award based on the number of training hours logged.
“Our 11th Diamond Award is the direct result of the exemplary team effort and cooperative spirit put forth by every DI technician,” commented Len Campbell, senior program director, Andrews Support Division.
“I am very proud of the effort and dedication of our team to achieve the third consecutive FAA Diamond Award,” said Jeffrey Cavarra, CAL FIRE program manager.
“This achievement demonstrates a dedication to training,” said Thomas Hadden, C-21A CLS program director. “We recognize how important it is to continually increase maintenance skills and safety awareness. When there is no room for error, training is critical.”
“The C-20 maintenance team is a standout group that exudes professionalism and pride. The FAA Diamond Award is a team effort and we are grateful to have an outstanding Quality and Training team,” said Duane Carr, C-20 program manager said.
T-6 program director Blake Mathies said, “Earning the FAA Diamond Award reinforces our commitment to providing quality parts and having quality personnel on our team.”
