December 30, 2019 – The AMFA National Executive Council (NEC) is pleased to announce that we will be accepting applications until February 28, 2020, for two AMFA Scholarships for 2019. Scholarships will be $2500 and will be payable to each recipient’s institution of higher learning. Last year’s scholarships were awarded to students of South Seattle Community College in Seattle, WA and Hallmark University in San Antonio, TX.
“Contributing to the education of the next generation of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians is one of AMFA’s ambitions,” said Bret Oestreich, AMFA National Director. “We are honored to be offering this opportunity as costs have risen to obtain a FAA Airframe & Powerplant license.”
Those who apply must be currently enrolled in a school or university to gain their Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) license, be a US Citizen, and submit a 500-word essay about the importance of the FAA Hotline, ASAP, NASA ASRS, and safety reporting system as they relate to the aviation industry. The application and further information can be found on the Education page of the AMFA National website.
Founded in 1962, the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association is a craft oriented, independent aviation union. AMFA represents licensed and unlicensed technicians and related employees actively involved in the aviation industry. These technician and related employees work directly on aircraft and/or components, support equipment, and facilities. AMFA is committed to elevating the professional standing of technicians and to achieving progressive improvements in wages, benefits, and working conditions of the skilled craftsmen and women it represents.
