The Aerospace Maintenance Council hosts annually the Aerospace Maintenance Competition (AMC). This year’s event will take place on April 10-11, 2018 in Orlando.
The event showcases the talent required of aviation maintenance technicians to maintain aircraft and spacecraft in safe, airworthy condition. To further support our future mechanics, AMC is proud to provide scholarships in recognition of Phoebe Jane Fairgrave Omlie, the first female to receive an FAA aircraft mechanic’s license in 1927. Phoebe helped show the world that women were just as capable as men in repairing and maintaining aircraft.
Awards in the amount of $500-$2500 may be used towards the purchase of tools, books and/or school tuition. To be eligible, applicants must be enrolled in a Federal Aviation Administration part 147 program and registered to compete in the 2018 AMC.
The awards are supported through the generous contributions of AMC participants and sponsors. Contributions to the scholarship fund are welcome; donors will be recognized during the AMC award ceremony on April 12 in Orlando.
