Intercontinental Jet Service Corporation
Awarded the FAA Diamond Award
Service Center receives maintenance training honor
Tulsa, Oklahoma, March, 2008 — Intercontinental Jet Service Corporation (IJSC) President Dennis Braner and the entire IJSC team are proud to announce that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has presented IJSC the prestigious “Diamond Award” in recognition of their maintenance training program.
The Diamond Award is in recognition of IJSC’s commitment to providing professional training for its technical staff. Each IJSC technician was recognized individually for successfully completing maintenance training throughout the 2007 business year.
The Diamond Award is recognition provided by the FAA designed to encourage maintenance employees and companies to actively participate in initial and recurrent training programs. The Diamond Award and individual honors were presented by Mr. Steve Keesey, FAA Safety Team Manager from the Southwest Region.
“IJSC is proud of our Professional Technical Team achieving such a high level of training and being recognized by the FAA after our first full year of operation as a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. (MHIA) owned company,” said IJSC President Dennis Braner. “IJSC is committed to Aviation Safety and one of the major factors contributing to a safe work and flying environment is providing proper training to a professional team of technicians,” he added.
IJSC was purchased by MHIA in May 2006 and services over 200 Mitsubishi MU-2 turboprop and light jet aircraft every year. Dennis Braner expects that number to increase as IJSC’s reputation and capabilities continue to grow.
Intercontinental Jet Service Corporation (IJSC) is a wholly owned affiliate of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. (MHIA). IJSC is a Mitsubishi MU-2 Service Center and a Honeywell TPE331 Major Service Center providing service and support for the MU-2 and other light jet aircraft.
