St. Louis Aviation Maintenance Association Holds Annual Symposium

By Carmelo Turdo
The St. Louis Aviation Maintenance Association held their annual Aviation Maintenance Symposium Friday at the Crowne Plaza St. Louis Airport Hotel. During the day-long event, current and future Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics (A&Ps) and Inspectors participated in education sessions covering current technical, compliance and human factors topics. Attendees learned about best practices for maintaining piston engines, brakes, batteries, electrical systems and aircraft structures from industry specialists. Other important subjects, such as federal compliance, aircraft records and human factors in aviation safety were also scheduled. 

Along with the seminar sessions, aviation product and service representatives were on site to demonstrate their latest offerings in the lobby exhibit area. Included with the exhibitors were two area non-profit organizations, the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum and Wings of Hope, both of which rely on volunteer A&Ps to support their operations. Other aviation product and service providers having displays at the symposium included below are Flying Colours Corporation, The AD Toolbox Online and Quality Testing.  

The Aero Experience thanks the St. Louis Aviation Maintenance Association, the exhibitors, instructors and attendees for making this another successful symposium. Next year's symposium is tentatively scheduled for February 21, 2020.
