Jensen Beach, Fla., February 13, 2020 – STS Line Maintenance just received the FAA Diamond Award by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration for the second year in a row. The award recognizes the company’s commitment to aircraft maintenance training and safety.
“Given the growing size of our Line Maintenance network, this is quite an accomplishment,” says Mark Smith, Group President of STS Line Maintenance. “The promotion of safety through regular and ongoing training has always been a focal point for STS Line Maintenance, but to receive the FAA Diamond Award means 100% participation from our entire staff… and that’s hundreds of people rallying around the company’s core cultural values and training methods year in and year out. Again, quite an accomplishment.”
Back in the early part of 2019, STS Line Maintenance enrolled itself into the FAA FAAST program; a program designed to promote safer skies through the ongoing training and education of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians. In order to receive the FAA Diamond Award two years running, every touch labor specialist employed by STS Line Maintenance had to successfully complete the year-long program with ratings levels that exceeded the Federal Aviation Administration’s justifiably high standards.
“We fix, troubleshoot and modify commercial aircraft for a living,” says William Ahern, Director of Quality and Chief Inspector for STS Line Maintenance. “That’s a responsibility and a privilege we take very seriously. This award reflects that, and I’m proud of our team for rallying together and working hard to bring this honor home. This award means a lot to us as an organization but knowing that safety rests at the heart of everything we do means a great deal more to our customers and the people who travel on their aircraft.
