AMT Code of Ethics

LIPAMA members ascribe to the following code of ethics, established by PAMA and endorsed by the FAA.

My Performance is a Public Service
 
“As a certified technician, my performance is a public service and, as such, I have a responsibility to the United States Government and its citizens. I must ensure that all citizens have confidence in my integrity and that I will perform my work according to the highest principles of ethical conduct Therefore, I swear that I shall hold in sacred trust the rights and privileges conferred upon me as a certified technician. The safety and lives of others are dependent upon my skill and judgment, therefore I shall never knowingly subject others to risks which I would not be willing to assume for myself, or for those who are dear to me.”
 
Good Judgment
 
“As a certified technician, I am aware that it is not possible to have knowledge and skill in every aspect of aviation maintenance for every airplane, so I pledge that I will never undertake work or approve work which I believe to be beyond the limits of my knowledge. I shall not allow any superior to persuade me to approve aircraft or equipment as airworthy when there is doubt in my mind as to the validity of my action. Under no circumstances will I permit the offer of money or other personal favors to influence me to act contrary to my best judgment, nor to pass as airworthy aircraft or equipment about which I am in doubt.”
 
Integrity
 
“The responsibility that I have accepted as a certificated technician demands that I exercise my judgment on the airworthiness of aircraft and equipment, therefore I pledge unyielding adherence to these precepts for the advancement of aviation and for the dignity of my vocation.”
