Honoring Charles Taylor


Two of aviation maintenance's leading advocates are teaming up to get Charles Taylor's name on the wall at the Hazy Center--the bigger, the better. 

AMTA and ARSA are bootstrapping a campaign to raise $10,000 as part of an effort to get the father of  aviation maintenance on the center's Wall of Honor. Funds raised so far--about $2,000--are enough to ensure Taylor a spot; the effort now is to get the inscription to be as prominent as possible. Donations can be made online--check out ARSA's site for step-by-step instructions.
