Founded with the goal of supplying training materials for aviation maintenance educators, AVOTEK has been an ATEC member for more than 30 years.
“The importance of the work done by ATEC means schools, the companies supporting the schools, and the companies hiring maintenance technicians should all be supporting the efforts of ATEC,” said Avotek’s Jeff Strong, recounting why Avotek is such a strong supporter of the organization. “Recent history has shown that ATEC is fighting for this industry's needs, all the way to Capitol Hill, and we are proud to be a part of that effort.”
During next year’s annual conference, Avotek will showcase its education materials designed to help educators prepare students for careers in the aviation maintenance industry. These include its recently released books: Avionics: Beyond the AET, Advanced Composites, Helicopter Maintenance, and Transport Category Aircraft Systems. In addition, it will showcase its latest online courses. Those include Slick Magnetos, J34 Turbojet Engines, Vapor Cycle Air Conditioning System, Bernoulli’s Principle and Principles of Sound.
In speaking of the annual conference, Strong said: “This is the one event where we can meet with the largest percentage of our customers in the same place at the same time. For our type of business, this is the best of all worlds. We love to catch up with our customers (and potential customers) to hear about their successes and what challenges they are facing. This informs us of what support we can offer to help, whether it be classroom trainers, textbooks, or online courses.”
