Seeking Recognition For Those Most Deserving


Some fly for fun, some for money and some to serve. If you know anyone in that last category (or any combination, for that matter) you can nominate them for one of five categories in the National Public Benefit Flying Awards Program, which was launched by the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) in cooperation with the Air Care Alliance last year. The awards honor those who have made significant contributions in public-benefit flying or performed an exceptional action in the cause. Deadline for nominations is June 30 and they can be made online or by mail to NAA, 1815 N. Fort Myer Drive, Suite 500, Arlington, VA 22209. Nominations are being accepted for the Distinguished Volunteer Pilot, whose effort, time and performance exceeds all expectations; Distinguished Volunteer, for those non-pilots who support the efforts; Outstanding Achievement in Support of Public Flying, which honors contributions that advance the cause of public-benefit flying; Public Benefit Flying Team Award, for a collaborative effort in public-benefit flying; and the Champion of Public Benefit Flying, for those not directly involved in public-benefit flying but whose support make it possible.
