Each year, representatives of the FAA’s Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) program issue five levels of training certificates– bronze, silver, gold, ruby and diamond–to eligible technicians and employers. The employer Diamond Certificate is awarded when 25 percent of each site’s eligible employees receive a minimum of six hours of training during the course of a year.

All six of Gulfstream Aerospace’s service centers have earned AMT Diamond Certificates of Excellence from the FAA. Gulfstream has facilities in Long Beach, Calif.; Dallas; Appleton, Wis.; Savannah, Ga.; Brunswick, Ga; and Luton, England. Gulfstream’s London Luton facility is the first service center outside the U.S. to be so recognized by the FAA.

General Dynamics Aviation Services has announced that the FAA awarded AMT Diamond Certificates of Excellence to all five of its service centers. The company’s facilities are located in Las Vegas; Dallas; Minneapolis; Westfield, Mass.; and West Palm Beach, Fla.
