The Eagle Creek Family of Companies has once again received the AMT Diamond Award of Excellence from the FAA for participating in the Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program in 2019. This is the ninth consecutive year that Eagle Creek Aviation and Naples Jet Center have received the award and the fourth year First Wing Jet Center has received the award under ownership by Eagle Creek.

The FAA AMT Awards program is designed to encourage individual AMTs as well as employers to invest in continuing education. The Diamond award is reserved for companies that achieve 100 percent participation from eligible employees. In 2019, all of the AMTs at all three Eagle Creek locations spent more than 1,500 hours in training – online, in the classroom, and on-the-job.

“As a company, we are committed to excellence in everything we do, including ensuring that we continue to invest in our technicians through training and education. We believe our customers are best served by professionals who are continually learning and utilizing industry best practices,” said Scott Dillon, Eagle Creek Aviation President. “We are honored to be recognized by the FAA for that commitment and look forward to achieving the Diamond Award each and every year.”
