The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) will receive the Frank G. Brewer Trophy for Aviation Education “for exemplary accomplishment and collaborative work with numerous aerospace organizations across the nation to assist students, teachers and community leaders in understanding the science, skill and beauty of flight.” The Brewer Trophy is presented annually by the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) for significant contributions of enduring value to aerospace education in the United States.
NAA President and CEO Jonathan Gaffney, Chairman of the Selection Committee, said, “I was very pleased with the quality of nominations we received for the Brewer Trophy, and I am particularly proud that the Academy of Model Aeronautics was named as the recipient for 2011. For 75 years they have maintained a focus on aviation education which has impacted millions of young people across the United States, and the Brewer Trophy is a great acknowledgment of their dedication and commitment to this very important cause.”
