    American Airlines is honoring a special group of Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) for their lifetime achievement of serving five or more decades in the airline industry.
    At American's maintenance facilities in Tulsa, Okla., Kansas City, Mo., and Tampa, Fla., the airline paid homage to eight AMTs with the FAA's prestigious Charles E. Taylor "Master Mechanic" Award, which recognizes the lifetime accomplishments of senior mechanics. The award is named in honor of Charles E. Taylor, who worked for the Wright Brothers and was the first aviation mechanic in powered flight. To be eligible for the award, a recipient must have served 50 years as an accredited aviation mechanic and have been an FAA-certified mechanic for a minimum of 30 years.
