MAVERICK HELICOPTERS RECEIVES FAA “DIAMOND AWARD” OF EXCELLENC FOR 11TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
Maverick Helicopters is pleased to announce it has been awarded the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) 2021 Award of Excellence “Diamond Award.” The prestigious honor is the highest recognition by the Federal Aviation Administration for maintenance technicians and is a result of the company’s ongoing dedication to maintenance, training and aircraft safety. This is Maverick Helicopters’ 11th consecutive year earning the Diamond Award for its Las Vegas and Grand Canyon South Rim locations and the seventh consecutive award for its Hawaii operations in Maui and Kauai.
“To receive the FAA’s highest honor, the Diamond Award of Excellence, for the 11th year in a row, is a true testament to Maverick Helicopters’ rigorous training standards and unwavering commitment to aircraft safety” said John Buch, president of Maverick Helicopters. “We are honored to be recognized by our peers for this award, and I am so proud of our team’s continued efforts to remain leaders in the helicopter industry.”
The FAA’s Award of Excellence was created to recognize aviation operators for participating in the FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program. The rigorous program encourages employers to participate in continuous learning training programs in aviation maintenance, regulations, and FAA rules. Each participating organization can receive honors ranging from the “Gold Award” to the “Diamond Award.” The “Diamond Award” is only awarded to a select few operators that have reached the highest level of program criteria.
All of Maverick Helicopters’ eligible technicians were recognized with individual awards through their continued education. In 2021, Maverick technicians completed nearly 2,000 hours of training.
