Warrendale, PA (PRWEB) - The Avionics Maintenance Conference will be held May 1-4, 2017, at the Milwaukee Convention Center/Hilton Milwaukee City Center, in Milwaukee, Wisc.
The event is expected to attract more than 650 technical and management professionals from more than 30 countries, representing 30 airlines, five airframe manufacturers and more than 170 avionics suppliers.
The Avionics Maintenance Conference (AMC) is the foremost platform for the avionics and aviation electronics industry to learn, network and source new information, products, technologies and services at one distinctive annual event.
The objectives of AMC are to promote reliability and to reduce operating and life cycle costs of air transport avionics by improving maintenance and support techniques through the exchange of technical information. Attendees will:
Symposium topics will include:
Monday, May 1– 10:30 a.m.
Global Aircraft Tracking
Chuck Adler, Boeing, will discuss avionics and prime engineer for addressing the Aircraft Tracking mandates.
Mike Garcia, Aireon, will address the Space-based ADS-B option/approach.
Tuesday, May 2– 3:20 p.m.
Chemicals Under Control
Chemicals are used in avionics components: sometimes as coating of printed circuit boards, sometimes as heatsink contact layers, sometimes as paint or lubricant, and sometimes are just used for cleaning. Our CMMs are calling out many chemicals which are supposed to be used in the maintenance of avionics components.
AMC (Avionics Maintenance Conference) recognizes the importance of chemicals. There are also issues. Therefore, the AMC Steering Committee decided to recognize numerous requests to organize a symposium about chemicals in the avionics environment. Chemistry is very broad area, but our need is to provide a symposium which can inform our audience about the following topics:
Wednesday, May 3 – 3:20 p.m.
Nuisance Fault Messages
This topic is considered an important one for most airlines; and it also is one that most larger suppliers and OEMs struggle with. This symposium will see three points of view on the panel:
This symposium might not solve the industry problem with nuisance fault messages, but it could help spread a greater understanding of the causes, effects, and impacts to help us all find a path to improvement.
Cost to attend is $600. Members and Corporate Sponsors attend at no charge. For more information go to: http://www.aviation-ia.com/AeecAmc/index.html

The AMC is an air transport industry activity organized by ARINC Industry Activities and SAE Industry Technologies Consortia program. The objectives of AMC are to promote reliability and reduced operating cost in air transport avionics by improving maintenance and support techniques through the exchange of technical information. AMC consists of representatives from the technical leadership of the air transport avionics maintenance community. AMC promotes improved avionics reliability and performance at lower life-cycle cost through the coordination of common technical problems in the airlines. AMC saves the industry money each year through participation in the annual Avionics Maintenance Conference. AMC also tracks developing maintenance issues and new products and makes inputs to or develops standards to maintain safe aircraft with lower life-cycle costs.
ARINC Industry Activities (ARINC IA) is a SAE ITC (Industry Technologies Consortia) program. The SAE ITC team specializes in establishing and managing consortia by providing proven processes, tools and resources. ITC enables public, private, academic and government organizations to connect and collaborate in neutral, pre-competitive forums thus empowering the setting and implementation of strategic business improvements in highly engineered industries globally.
