SALUTING THE TEAM UNDER THE WING … AND THE ENGINE
BY: TAKING OFF
Today marks National Aviation Maintenance Technician Day, a day that honors the often unsung work Delta’s maintenance professionals do behind the scenes from nose to tail day-in and day-out.
Here are a few interesting facts that make our technicians some of the best in the business.
• We have more than 9,000 AMTs and other technical professional worldwide managing our fleet of more than 740 aircraft and 50 percent of this experienced group has been with Delta for more than 20 years.
• Every day before every flight these techs evaluate dozens of touch points – and hundreds of touch points are checked before our customers ever set foot on board our planes.
• So far this year, our Tech Ops team has logged more than 60 days (with 2,600 Delta-operated flights a day) and counting with no flight cancellations related to maintenance.
All this work culminates to ensure you have a safe and on- time departure!
