About AMC

One Great Venue, Two Conferences. 

Each year, the Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) General Session and Avionics Maintenance Conference (AMC) join together in one location to bring together industry experts from around the world. The AEEC General Session and AMC function simultaneously, providing opportunities to explore common issues and advancements in the industry through discussion and technical symposiums, and direct focus on the advancement of technical standards and committee and working group activities under the auspices of the AEEC and AMC. 

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.

The benefits of AMC for airlines are long-term success in economic management and operation of commercial aircraft. This long-term success will require a more holistic approach to AMC aspects of aircraft equipment. Simply put, what is built today based on a new design specification has to be maintained tomorrow.

In the forum created by the AMC, the airlines have various opportunities to influence and determine future directions in system and component design, reliability, and cost effectiveness. Speaking in the context of their daily operations, airlines can bring together ideas for improved standardized maintenance concepts and providing valuable feedback to the equipment manufacturers.
