Nominations are due by May 31, 2011, for awards presented each year by the National Aeronautic Association, in collaboration with the Air Care Alliance, to recognize contributions to public benefit flying. Nominations are accepted for five categories that cover volunteer pilots, volunteers, achievement in the advancement of public benefit flying, teamwork between unaffiliated organizations, and extraordinary support efforts that advance the cause of public benefit flying. Nominations that fall outside of those categories may not be considered.

The Air Care Alliance has posted a page that describes the award categories, nomination and selection process and more -- find it here. The awards are intended to honor volunteers working in the field of public benefit flying and those who support them. They may be granted to groups, organizations or individuals. Nominations are limited to a maximum of five printed pages with specific guidelines. Prior recipients include the Civil Air Patrol, Angel Flight America Mission Coordinators, Wings of Hope, Corporate Angel Network and other groups, as well as airlines and individuals.
