2021 Aerospace Maintenance Competition Presented by Snap-on Cancelled; Event Expected to Resume in 2022
Due to ongoing travel and logistical challenges brought on by COVID-19, the Aerospace Maintenance Competition (AMC) presented by Snap-on that was originally scheduled for April 27-29, 2021, in Orlando, FL, has been cancelled.
The AMC is an international annual event that attracts upwards of 90 maintenance teams from around the world, providing an opportunity for certified AMTs from major airlines, MROs and OEMs, as well as military personnel and students in FAA Part 147 schools, the chance to test their maintenance skills against their peers.
“The consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have greatly impacted the aviation industry, as well as the AMC. As we evaluated hosting the competition in April, we heard from our sponsors and many teams that the timing just isn’t right. It was clear to us that the industry is still in a recovery mode. As such, we made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s AMC,” says Ken MacTiernan, chairman, Aerospace Maintenance Competition. “We’ve already begun planning for the AMC’s return to the MRO America’s convention in April 2022 in Dallas and are looking forward to once again hosting a world-class event for aviation technicians.”
All team, event and sponsor registrations will carry forward to next year's competition. The Dallas event is now scheduled for April 25-28, 2022. Registration will open on Oct. 1.
Note: While the AMC has been cancelled, Aviation Week Network's MRO Americas will take place as scheduled, in Orlando on April 27-29, 2021.
