The Members of the Aircraft Maintenance Technicians Association are the reason behind the success of  the AMTA in achieving our goals. The support, donations and energy of AMTA members will ensure that the story of Charles E. Taylor and today's skilled AMTs is not forgotten.

This page is created to show how individuals who wish to make a positive difference can do just that. If you know of anyone who has promoted our skilled craft and profession in a positive light please contact me with the information so I may post their achievements.




Laconia Airport


AMTA Member O.V. Delle-Femine believed that the flying public had a need to know who Charles E. Taylor was and his place in aviation's history needed to be remembered. On September 1, 2009 Mr. Delle-Femine, aka "Dell",  met with the Mayor of Laconia and the Airport Authority. Dell gave a presentation on a potential display that included a copy of the New Hampshire AMT Day Resolution and Congressional AMT Day Resolution. These resolutions would be next to a replica of the Wright Flyer. These items would allow visitors to the Laconia Airport to see and read about Taylor's contributions to aviation and the recognition that he and those who have followed in his footsteps have earned.

Having displays like this throughout our nation's airports is a great way to reach out and educate the public about a part of aviation's history that was almost forgotten. Thanks to Dell's efforts the AMT craft & profession is being brought to the forefront of the public's attention. Thank you Dell!
