FAA Grants Its Highest Safety Award to Horizon Air Maintenance for 10th Year in a Row

PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded Horizon Air its 10th consecutive Diamond Certificate of Excellence. The award recognizes the airline for achieving a 100 percent participation rate by its maintenance personnel in the Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Awards program.

"Horizon Air continues to be an industry leader through encouraging continued education of its AMTs and participating in the AMT Award program,” said Jim Hultgrien, FAA Safety Team Program Manager at the FAA’s Portland Flight Standards District Office. “We believe a well managed and up to date training program is a key component to a company’s safety culture. The FAA’s AMT Award program is a way to acknowledge Horizon’s dedication to training and their commitment to safety."

Established in 1991, the AMT program honors aviation maintenance personnel and employers who participate in training opportunities that exceed FAA regulatory requirements. The Diamond Certificate of Excellence is the highest honor the program can bestow on a company.

"This is a tribute to Horizon’s maintenance employees," said Celia Sherbeck, Horizon's vice president of maintenance and engineering. “They are extremely dedicated to continually refining and expanding their technical expertise in order to sustain and strengthen our company's safety.”

Horizon serves 48 cities throughout Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Baja California Sur (Mexico), and British Columbia and Alberta (Canada). Together, Horizon Air and Alaska Airlines serve more than 90 cities and are subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group, Inc. (NYSE:ALK).
