Sustaining a violation-free record for five years is an achievement to be proud of. Celebrate — and let your peers know—with an HAI Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Safety Award.

The HAI AMT Safety Award recognizes helicopter maintenance and avionics technicians worldwide who have successfully achieved five or more consecutive years of violation-free helicopter maintenance experience. Qualified maintenance or avionics technicians can proudly display their HAI Aviation Maintenance Technician Safety Award as evidence of their high standards of professional conduct. To receive the award you must complete and submit the HAI Aviation Maintenance Technician Safety Award application.

An eligible AMT must:

  • Provide certificate or license number, as applicable
  • Complete all entries on the nomination form accurately and legibly, including signing the form to certify that the information contained in the application is accurate
  • If the nominee is an employee of an HAI member company, the nomination form must also include the signature of (choose one) the company’s director of maintenance OR general manager to certify that the facts presented are accurate to the best of their knowledge.
