Every year, the FAA recognizes those individuals who have made a significant contribution to general aviation. However, we cannot properly honor and recognize these individuals without your help!
The General Aviation Industry Awards Program www.generalaviationawards.org is a cooperative effort between the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and aviation industry sponsors to recognize annually outstanding individuals in the fields of Avionics, Flight Instruction, and Maintenance. In addition, the program recognizes outstanding individuals serving the FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam) as representatives. The awards highlight the important roles these individuals play in promoting aviation safety, education, and professionalism. Winners will be recognized locally, regionally and nationally. National winners will be recognized during AirVenture-Oshkosh each July.
We at the FAASTeam are accepting nominations for the General Aviation Awards Programs which are available in four categories: CFI of the Year, Maintenance Tech of the Year, Avionics Tech of the Year, and FAASTeam Representative of the Year. If you know an individual who you feel is deserving on this honor, we ask you to submit a nomination. Please go to www.faasafety.gov where you will find the application materials, just go to the "Pilots" tab or the "Maintenance Hangar" tab at the top of the page and click on the "Award Program" link to find the application materials. You may even nominate yourself. Hurry, nomination forms are due by September 30. Then send the completed application packages to one of the following:
