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 Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association is a craft oriented, independent aviation union representing licensed and unlicensed technicians and related employees in the aviation industry. AMFA is committed to elevating the professional standing of technicians and to achieving progressive improvements in wages, benefits, and working conditions of the skilled craftsmen and women it represents.
AMFA annually awards cash scholarships to A&P students. This year's scholarships will be awarded to three individuals in the amount of $2,000 payable to each recipient's institution of higher learning.
