Happy Birthday Charles!
National Aviation Maintenance Technician Day
May 24 th marks the 152 nd birthday of Charles Edward Taylor, builder of the first aircraft engine used by the Wright Brothers. 

His skills and expertise as an inventor and machinist paved the way for aircraft maintenance as we know it today. 
Known as National Aviation Maintenance Technician Day, this day is in commemoration of both Mr. Taylor’s birthday and his many contributions to our industry.

So if you happen to see your favorite aviation tech today, or any day for that matter, wish him or her a fabulous day. To be sure they will genuinely appreciate the gesture.

And you'll appreciate the special we're offering to celebrate. Read on to see.

What was then called 'Under the Cowl', May 2012 ushered in our first newsletter.

This is about the 100th edition. Yeah, we may have miscounted a few along the way, but we're close enough for horseshoes.

While we might not have won many style points back then, we did our best to provide important, quality content. Take a look at Issue #1
Thanks for being a dedicated reader.
