The International Assn. of Helicopter Maintenance Professionals (IAHMP) was created from a decision at the Global Helicopter Mechanic Shortage Symposium at the 2015 Heli-Expo in Orlando, Florida. The assn.'s mission is to provide helicopter maintenance professionals with a global, self-sustaining assn. committed to promoting and advancing the Airframe & Powerplant/Aircraft Maintenance Engineer community at the individual level and to be the membership's advocate and voice to the rest of the industry.
As of December 11, 2015, IAHMP went from a concept to a reality. The assn. is headquartered in Glendale, Arizona, and will make its debut at Heli-Expo.
