National AMT Day

To commemorate National AMT Day on May 23, MAC, CSA, and WASI dedicated time to celebrate the hard-working and dedicated mechanics we are privileged to work with. With catered lunches and a special gift given to each mechanic, the day was filled with gratitude and celebration. A heartfelt thank you to our AMTs for ensuring the smooth operation of our aircraft and services.

Local School Receives MAC’s Book Drive Donation!

In celebration of World Book Day, MAC launched a book drive in April to gather gently used children’s books (grades K-5) for G.E. Massey Elementary School in Lincoln County. The Employee Engagement Committee at MAC had the opportunity to donate all the collected books to the elementary school this week.
The book drive was a huge success, with a total of 127 books donated by our employees! These books will offer new reading opportunities for the students at G.E. Massey and contribute to their reading achievements. As MAC expands its “MAC Gives Back” initiative, we are proud to have assisted the children in our local community and are so thankful for our team’s generosity!
