AMC 2019: Welcome to Atlanta!kbaker
After traveling a total of 2,431 miles combined, the four teams from PIA have arrived in Atlanta, GA for the Aerospace Maintenance Competition! The 20 students will begin the competition tomorrow morning at 9AM to test their skills against their fellow student, professional, and military aviation technicians.
Thanks to the generous donations from Piedmont Airlines, Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services, and all of our other sponsors, the students had a great first day in the city. While competition events didn’t begin until 3PM, the teams explored the Georgia Aquarium, enjoyed some fantastic local eateries, and relaxed in the warm Atlanta air.
The competition kicked off with a welcome from the AMC committee, where the rules and events were explained. Judges from the 31 events that the students will be participating in explained their judging criteria and the logistics of the task. Tomorrow marks the beginning of the MRO Americas, and the official start of the AMC.
