May 24 is the birthday of Charles E. Taylor, the mechanic who built the engine for the Wright Brothers’ first airplane. We celebrate his birthday by designating each May 24 as National Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Day.
Aircraft mechanics, students, airlines, aircraft manufactures, support companies and aviation organizations all over the United States celebrate this day to recognize the dedication, expertise and craft of the men and women who keep our aircraft flying safely each and every day.
To all the AMT’s who are members of our Local Lodge we celebrate you and your day! Thank you for your unwavering dedication and perseverance in good times, and bad times. You keep us flying!
