finalist logo

We are pleased to announce this year’s winners of the 145 Top Shop Awards. It was another amazing voting season, with a total of 30,094 nominations and 3460 winning votes submitted in twenty- eight different repair categories. The hottest contested repair category this year was for the Best Electro-Mechanical Repair with a total of 2,022 votes submitted. We also saw some close races in the Airframe & Aerostructures, Fuel Systems, Transparencies, and Wheel & Brake categories. Some races were within one vote, like the Wheel and Brake category where B&W Aviation pulled out a win by just one vote!

On behalf of The 145, and all the repair centers, we want to thank everyone that participated by submitting votes. Without your votes there wouldn’t be a 145 Top Shop Awards. We also want to congratulate this year’s winners on a job well done. If you’re a Top Shop you must be doing something right, so keep it up!
