Mechanics, human errors are the leading cause of aviation mishaps. To prevent this, maintenance leaders and commanders should ensure they’re implementing a not-so-old concept called the Aviation Maintenance Training Program (AMTP).  AMTP involves the entire chain of command training Soldiers on maintenance skills and knowledge that have:
  • measurable competencies,
  • standardized task requirements and procedures,
  • standardized training records.
For more information on the Aviation Maintenance Training Program, read SGM Jason Rittichier’s Flightfax article HERE.
