Aircraft maintenance professionals are no strangers to working behind the scenes, but that reality changes on April 25th. As the 2017 MRO Americas Event in Orlando kicks off, all eyes will be on the Aerospace Maintenance Competition, and not just from the exhibit hall floor as in previous years.
Starting on Tuesday the 25th, at 0900, the challenging competition will be broadcast via an Internet live stream for viewing by co-workers, family, friends and students. The event, which is presented by Snap-on, American Airlines and Pratt & Whitney, brings together over 55 teams from 8 countries for a two day competition which tests the skills, knowledge and expertise of aviation and aerospace students and professionals.
“The event organizers have done an amazing job over the years with this competition and they’re attracting the best of the best talent from around the world” said AireXpert EVP Andy Hakes. “Up until now however, the only audience has been those visitors who are fortunate enough to attend the MRO Conference. It’d be nice for those competitors to have the support of their co-workers in the stands, but someone has to maintain the airplanes at home. As a company whose focus is on communications and delivering technical knowledge and expertise, we see this as a great opportunity to enable the live stream for all of those people who couldn’t attend MRO”.
