The National Flight School headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, is the recipient of the FAA’s Award of Excellence for its commitment to aircraft maintenance, safety and regulatory compliance. At a time when airlines are eagerly hiring pilots in large numbers to keep pace with the post-pandemic travel recovery, AeroGuard understands the importance of focusing on safety and quality that will help its students build long and successful careers. .
AeroGuard’s goal in the flight training industry is to “set a higher standard” for its students, going above and beyond industry competitors, and this award is proof of that. The Diamond Award requires 100% of all mechanics, repair personnel, and technicians to achieve AMT training certification by 2021, exceeding FAA regulatory requirements with additional training in specialty components.
The team of more than 40 technicians expertly maintains a fleet of more than 70 aircraft to welcome hundreds of flight program graduates to its four US campuses each year working around the clock to meet the needs of a growing student population.
Shawn Rockey, Director of Maintenance, credits the resilience and professionalism of the maintenance team during a turbulent year to enhanced security protocols noting, “The FAA Diamond award is proof that our maintenance team demonstrates the highest caliber of integrity and dedication to safety possible. The AeroGuard team continually goes the extra mile to serve our students, including the availability of aircraft to keep their formation on track.”
Safety is the highest priority in the aviation industry, and with so many student pilots passing through the gates each year, AeroGuard is leading the way to success by investing in its maintenance staff, who ensure the fleet is ready to fly for students to progress quickly. through their training.
Participation in the AMT Award program is voluntary and not required by the FAA or any other governing body, but AeroGuard considers it standard operating procedure, with CEO Joel Davidson adding, “We have a duty to our students to provide exceptional training in the safest and most responsible manner possible. The success of each student is determined by our ability to service our aircraft quickly and safely for daily operations. We proud to be recognized once again for our commitment to excellence.”
With the continued shortage of trained commercial pilots, major airlines are rapidly hiring cadets and this rate of training increases the speed of graduation to give students a head start on the path to a highly lucrative career.
AeroGuard’s Pilot Pathway program, now available in Austin, Texas, is offered in partnership with SkyWest Airlines, which also offers a tuition reimbursement incentive to its graduates.
