Bombardier Business Aircraft’s Wichita Service Centre and its aircraft maintenance technicians were among five of the Canadian company’s U.S. centers and technicians to receive the Federal Aviation Administration’s Diamond Award Certificates of Excellence for aircraft maintenance in 2015.

Bombardier said it was the 15th consecutive award for the Wichita center, eclipsed only by its Hartford center, which has received 17 consecutive Diamond awards.

Other Bombardier service centers that received Diamond awards in 2015 were Dallas, with 14 consecutive awards; Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with eight consecutive awards; and Tucson, Ariz., with six consecutive awards.

“Our consecutive FAA AMT Diamond Awards are a testament to our network's outstanding skills and abilities,” Stan Younger, vice president of Bombardier Business Aircraft service centers, said in a news release Tuesday. “We are extremely proud of this recognition and its significance.”
