About the General Aviation Awards

The General Aviation Awards Program is a cooperative effort between many different sponsors and organizations from the aviation industry and the Federal Aviation Administration, FAA.

For more than 50 years, the Program has recognized aviation professionals in the fields of flight instruction, aviation maintenance, avionics, and flight safety for their important contributions to the general aviation community. 

These awards highlight the important leadership roles these individuals play in promoting aviation safety, education, and professionalism. 

Winners are recognized locally, regionally, and nationally. National winners are recognized during AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI each July. There, they also receive gifts provided by our many sponsors and contributors.
