Read the press release from Frontier at http://www.frontierairlines.com/news/articleDisplay.asp?article=/general/2005/pr_02042005.news. My question is this:

Why is Frontier the only airline doing this? 25% doesn't seem like a high threshhold to meet. Is there a reason that the other carriers, particularly the smaller ones, aren't doing this sort of thing?

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 25, 2004 -- US Airways Express carrier Piedmont Airlines has received the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) distinguished Diamond Certificate of Excellence Award for 2003, for its proactive role in aircraft maintenance training of its technical maintenance workforce. This is Piedmont's fourth consecutive year receiving the award, repeating its achievements for 2000, 2001 and 2002.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Big deal. The FAA Diamond award is worthless. All it shows is you can get your mechanics to sign the entry form. All airlines require the 'extra' training. We have to do recurrent on ETOPS, paperwork issues, and hours of safety related recurrent. All of this quailfies towards this award. So at the beginning of the year the leads walk around with the form for us all to sign. In return we get a cheesy plastic pin and an fancy certificate than goes in the bottom of our tool box.
