Maverick Helicopters, a leader in the Las Vegas air excursion industry, recently received the Federal Aviation Administrationâ€™s (FAA) most prestigious honor for maintenance, the Award of Excellence â€œDiamond Award.â€ This achievement signifies the companyâ€™s ongoing dedication to maintenance training and aircraft safety.
The FAAâ€™s Award of Excellence was created to honor aviation organizations and their maintenance technicians who participate in the FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program, a rigorous program where 100 percent of a companyâ€™s eligible maintenance technicians must pass specialized, continuous training in aircraft systems, FAA regulations and human factors over a 12-month period. This past year, Maverick invested more than 1,000 hours of training for their technicians. Participating aviation corporations can earn awards ranging from Gold to the Diamond Award; the Diamond Award is only given to a select few organizations that have reached the highest level of program criteria.
â€œWe are honored to receive this prestigious achievement from the FAA,â€ said John Buch, president of Maverick Aviation Group. â€œWe are all proud of our exceptional Maintenance Department and their dedication to safety and training. Our customers deserve the best, and with Maverick they receive just that.â€
