In reading the site, the formula listed on the AMT Awards page, “Knowledge + Professionalism = Safety” stuck in my mind as being a great way to sum up the approach we should all have towards aviation and the many related safety aspects of the profession.Developed from an accident prevention program in the early 1970′s, the current Aviation Safety Program is a joint program sponsored by the FAA and the Aviation Community that is aimed at addressing this important topic…. There are twenty levels in the Wings program that you can work your way through – with a maximum of one per year that will give most of us something to work on for a while!AMT’s have the Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards.
