Back by popular demand, the UAS Test Scholarship is back. The program covers the cost of the FAA test to earn a remote pilot certificate in order to operate UAVs (drones) as a commercial pilot for five student competitors.
Last year, four students received the scholarship, and all four successfully passed their exam and are now not only aspiring maintenance professionals but also licensed commercial UAS pilots.

The FAA has renewed a petition for exemption, requested by AMC on behalf of aviation maintenance technician schools (AMTS) certificated under part 147. The exemption provides relief from curriculum requirements provided for in § 147.21 such that AMTS may provide students credit for time spent preparing for and competing in the competition.
The exemption allows faculty members to determine whether student time dedicated to preparing for and participating in the AMC satisfies the requirements of § 147.21; students may be credited up to 60 hours.
The 2019 Aerospace Maintenance Competition happening at the Aviation Week MRO Conference in Atlanta will again be broadcasted live for viewers across the world. The live stream, originally broadcast in 2017 is expected to attract more than 12,000 viewers from more than 30 countries and is presented by the Tech Ops crew at AireXpert.
Video will be optimized for mobile & desktop viewers. Sign up to receive access information, below.
