The Aerospace Maintenance Competition is presented by the Aerospace Maintenance Council, a non-profit organization that promotes and supports the aerospace maintenance community. The competition recognizes and celebrates the aviation maintenance technician by raising awareness of the knowledge and skill required to maintain safe, airworthy aircraft, worldwide. This year’s event achieved record participation – 73 five-member teams will complete in 30 maintenance events intended to test skill and knowledge required of an aviation maintenance technician.
Gore is staging one of the competitive events. Competitors will be presented with a replica of a tail empennage, where they will use GORE™ SKYFLEX™ Aerospace Materials to install a D-Nose leading edge and an access panel. Teams will be judged on the following criteria: following instructions, quality of work, and speed of installation. Winners will be announced at the end of the competition.
