The Aerospace Maintenance Council’s Aerospace Maintenance Competition (AMC)—being held in conjunction with Aviation Week’s MRO Americas—will take place April 9-12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
This year’s event will showcase 29 events testing the technical prowess of current and future aviation maintenance professionals. Fifty-four companies and schools have registered to participate, the largest number of teams ever to compete. With only six open slots remaining, would-be competitors should register now to guarantee their spot.
The council is overwhelmed by industry support for this year’s event. Companies have pledged funds, organized competitive events, donated prizes, and contributed scholarships in recognition and celebration of the aviation maintenance technician.

Taking place April 10-11, 2018 in Orlando Fl, Military Aviation Logistics & Maintenance (MALMS) is a dedicated maintenance event for military professionals and their suppliers. Held in conjunction with the MRO Americas, the host of the 2018 AMC, and with the support of the sustainment leadership of the USAF, Army and Navy, the Symposium brings together key-decision makers from all military service branches and government leaders with prime contractors, suppliers and OEMs to discuss critical safety and security issues, current and future programs and the latest developments in military MRO technology and services.
Formerly known as MRO Military, the event was renamed to better reflect the “logistics” core of how the military performs and conceives its sustainment and readiness functions. The purpose of the Symposium is to drive information and knowledge sharing and support the U.S. military to partner with the commercial marketplace for innovation, process improvement, and increased readiness across the board.
The symposium is free for active, uniformed military personnel. The Aerospace Maintenance Competition is collocated on the MRO exhibition floor and military teams will be actively competing.
