In each of the past 47 years, the General Aviation Awards program and the FAA have recognized a small group of aviation professionals in the fields of flight instruction, aviation maintenance, avionics and safety for their contributions to aviation safety and education. This awards program is a cooperative effort between the FAA and a dozen industry sponsors. The selection process begins with the local FAA Safety Team managers at the Flight Standards District Offices (FSDO) and then moves on to the eight regional FAA offices. This year a single winner became the recipient of both Wisconsin and Great Lakes Region for the 2010 awards.
