Charles E. Taylor, Father of Aircraft Maintenance

AMT Day is celebrated each year on May 24th and many this year have already had gatherings commemorating this event. May 24 was chosen to celebrate AMT day because it is the birthday of Charles E. Taylor who is recognized as the first aircraft mechanic. Taylor worked for the Wright brothers in their bicycle shop. When engine manufacturers turned down the Wright brothers'’ requests to build an engine for their glider (saying they couldn’t meet the specifications), Taylor said he could do it. He designed and built the engine that powered the Wright Flyer to achieve the world’s first powered flight, propelling the Wright brothers into history.
