The responsibility we have to ensure an airworthy aircraft is critical to air travel. As a matter of fact, we hold our bond with the flying public to be sacred, because we truly believe it is a matter of life and death. May 24 is Aircraft Maintenance Technician Day, and the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) wants to take this opportunity to remind the flying public of who we are and what we do. We may seem elusive and invisible, but that’s because most of us operate in the background, ensuring that your flight is accomplished in the safest manner possible.
