Skyway Airlines receives Diamond Award in FAA's Aviation Maintenance Technician programme.
The Certificate of Excellence Diamond Award in the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Aviation Maintenance Technician awards programme, which recognises the training of maintenance technicians, has been awarded to Milwaukee-based Skyway Airlines Inc, which operates as Midwest Connect and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Midwest Airlines (Amex:MEH).
Air carriers must ensure 50% of their eligible maintenance technicians take part in a training programme and receive an FAA Certificate of Training in order to receive the award, which is the highest of the five FAA categories in the programme.
Skyway Airlines said it recorded 100% participation of its maintenance team for the tenth year running and claimed it was the tenth year all of its eligible mechanics had taken part in the programme and earned individual awards. Technicians have to complete 100 hours of training, including a three credit college level course in mathematics, English, science, management or similar subjects, to receive the Diamond Certificate of Training.
Skyway technicians received their awards and pins at a ceremony at the Skyway Airlines hanger, attended by local and regional FAA representatives.
