Jan. 9, 2014
Winners will be announced at upcoming AviationPros LIVE in March.

Ground Support Worldwide will honor three winners of its annual “Ground Support Leaders” awards, during the Networking Event, 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, March 25, at The Sands Expo Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV.

  • Lifetime Achievement Award: This award goes “to the person who has demonstrated commitment to the industry through numerous years of dedicated service.” In 2013, we honored Bill Biermann, who championed the use of electric ground support equipment during a career that lasted six decades.
  • Team Leader: This award honors “an individual who has taken a leadership role with personnel.”  In 2013, we named Travis Blair, managing director, ground support/administration for American Eagle Airlines, who has developed personnel from the time he started with the airline as a GSE mechanic.
  • Product Leader: This award “celebrates the product, service and manufacturer making a difference in the industry.” In 2013, Tronair won for its Softcapture Jetporter designed to tow aircraft without straps, without touching any part of the nose landing gear and without the driver leaving his seat.
