Aviation’s Best Maintenance Professionals-An interview with Coach Tom Zollar

Frequent Flyer B
Have you ever wondered how Southwest Mechanics compare to mechanics at other carriers? Aircraft Maintenance Professionals met last week in Las Vegas and a team of our Southwest Mechanics showed their talent in the fourth annual AMT Society Skills Competition. Teams from China, Mexico, Australia, and the US competed. This was Southwest's second year to compete and they went into Sin City with a perfect 1 and 0 record. When it was said and done our Southwest mechanics still have that perfect record but now it is two wins! You can't have a successful team without a coach and on this episode of Red Belly Radio I interview the undefeated coach, Tom Zollars, who reveals an exclusive announcement about next year's event.
