The Paul Cousins Award was created to recognize and remember the positive impact one individual made on the aviation maintenance craft and profession. Ever the consummate professional, Paul strove to better the conditions and image of aircraft maintenance professionals. His determination, passion and pride were second to none.
Paul Cousins, a former president of the Australian Licensed Aircraft Engineers Association, and strong advocate of the AMC, passed away in 2018 from cancer. AMC Chairman Ken MacTiernan credits Cousins with helping expand the AMC to airlines and MROs overseas.
“Paul’s professionalism was only matched by his gregarious personality and love for family and friends. He was a great advocate for our profession, and naming this award after him is our way to honor and recognize his legacy,” MacTiernan said. “Wherever you are in the world, we all share the same responsibilities and standards. We belong to a global community of skilled crafts-people.”
Recipients of the Paul Cousins Award represent what Paul battled to promote... skilled professionals. Those receiving this prestigious award carry the responsibilities of elevating and promoting the AME craft & profession. Just like Paul did.
