Achen-Gardner Construction took second place honors at the annual US Airways/City of Phoenix Aviation Department Charity Jet Pull on October 12, 2012. We pulled the US Airways 100,000-pound Airbus 319 (painted with the Arizona Cardinals logo) 15 feet across the tarmac in 5.008 seconds. That time was a full second faster than our time last year (6.051) when we won first place. Achen-Gardner won first place in 2010 and 2011.

A total of 27 teams (with 20 members on each team) competed for the first place trophy at the US Airways Hangar at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. It was a beautiful day and fun was had by all as we raised more than $5,700 for the Community Service Fund Drive charities.

This was the ninth year for the Jet Pull charity event/competition. Teams comprised of US Airways employees pulled first followed by Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and City of Phoenix teams. Teams pay an entry fee to compete in the event and food/drinks are sold at the event with all proceeds going to the United Way.
