Seeking corporate sponsors
PAMA
PAMA's board of directors has completed a business plan we are now prepared to present to potential sponsors. If you own, work for, or know of a company that is invested in the aircraft maintenance sector and would potentially be interested in supporting PAMA, we would appreciate your assistance in bringing us together.

This is a vital first step in the process of restructuring PAMA to meet the needs of the maintenance professional in the 21st century and beyond. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Bronze bust honors mechanic who helped Wright brothers take flight
Chicago Tribune
Long ago, Charles Taylor did the Wright thing for a pair of brothers and now aviation enthusiasts have done the right thing for the man who built the engine for the first powered aircraft. Taylor, a mechanic who worked in the Dayton, Ohio, bicycle shop owned by Orville and Wilbur Wright, is credited with building the lightweight engine that powered the craft that took flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on Dec. 17, 1903. If the Wright brothers get the credit for starting the aviation industry, Taylor is the man with a greasy wrench who made it all work.

In Kansas, the 787 Dreamliner gets its head start
CNET
When technicians at Spirit Aerosystems are done with their assembly work on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, they power it up. The aircraft's computers thinks it's ready to fly, and it would be — but for one thing: The plane has no wings or tail, and is missing most of its body. Still, a Dreamliner wouldn't be a Dreamliner without Spirit, which since 787s were first being built in 2007 has been the company that makes the next-generation composite plane's forward section.
