Flexjet, a global leader in subscription-based private aviation, has announced its 24th Federal Aviation Administration’s Diamond Award of Excellence for Aviation Maintenance Technician Training.
The honor follows Flexjet’s acquisition of Constant Aviation, a leading provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services.
“There is no higher priority across the aviation industry than ensuring the safety of passengers and flight crews,” said Jay Heublein, Flexjet senior vice president of maintenance. “Flexjet is committed to serving as a leader in flight safety in every aspect of its operations, and we are proud to be recognized with the FAA’s Diamond Award of Excellence for Aviation Maintenance Technician Training for the 24th year in a row.”
Established in 1991, the FAA Diamond Award recognizes aviation companies for highly effective training maintenance specialist programs designed to improve safety, compliance with aviation regulations and technical knowledge in ways that meet or exceed FAA requirements. All company maintenance technicians must participate in dedicated FAA training in areas focused on safety.
The acquisition of Constant Aviation added scheduled and unscheduled maintenance capabilities including complete airframe, engine and avionics maintenance functions, heavy maintenance, engine and component overhaul and damage repair and composite and sheet metal repairs. Constant Aviation has earned the FAA Diamond Award every year since its first successful attempt in 2016.
Flexjet now has maintenance facilities throughout the U.S. in Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Texas, Arizona and Florida and its nationwide AOG (Aircraft on Ground) mobile response network, with teams deploying from 28 U.S. locations and the capacity to serve the entire continental U.S., including those in airports lacking dedicated maintenance facilities.
