Meanwhile, Bruce Landsberg, executive director of AOPA’s Air Safety Foundation, was honored by the Aero Club of New England with its Presidential Medal.
The award was in honor of Landsberg’s contributions to the club’s Crash Course Safety Seminars, his positive representation of GA on industry committees, and his years of safety columns and advice. Landsberg is only the fourth recipient of the award.
