Aviation Maintenance Technician Day is celebrated each year on the 24th of May to recognize the efforts of aviation maintenance professionals as well as their achievements.
The date 24th May is selected in the honor of Charles Edward Taylor, the man who built the engine used to power the very first airplane of the Wright Brothers.
