United States Air Force Crew of Boar 51 Flight to Receive 2017 Mackay Trophy

The Mackay Trophy

NAA is proud to announce that United States Air Force Captain Samantha Harvey and Major Tyler Schultz, the aircrew of Boar 51 flight, have been named the recipients of the 2017 Mackay Trophy. 

The Mackay Trophy was first presented by Clarence Mackay in 1912 and was later deeded to the National Aeronautic Association. Administered by the United States Air Force and NAA, the trophy is awarded for the "...most meritorious flight of the year by an Air Force person, persons, or organization." 

As outlined in the United States Air Force nomination, the crew of Boar 51 distinguished themselves as two-ship A-10s, 354th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, 447th Expeditionary Operations Group, Incirlik Air Base, Turkey in support of OPERATION INHERENT RESOLVE. On May 2, 2017, the crew of Boar 51 was re-tasked to support a troops-in-contact situation where 50 American and countless Syrian Democratic Forces were pinned down with heavy machine gun fire, mortars, and rocket-propelled grenades. Boar 51 flight expended 1,500 pounds of ordnance and 1,300, 30-millimeter rounds on 19 targets, often inside danger close criteria. For over five hours, Captain Harvey and Major Schultz overcame communications degradation, severe thunderstorms and near-zero visibility, ultimately saving the lives of friendly forces. The distinctive accomplishments of Captain Harvey and Major Schultz reflect great credit upon themselves and the United States Air Force. 

The Mackay Trophy will be presented at the NAA Fall Awards Ceremony at a date and location TBD.

Anne Bridge Baddour to be Awarded the 2018 Katharine Wright Trophy

Anne Bridge Baddour

On August 9th, NAA announced that Anne Bridge Baddour had been selected as the recipient of the 2018 Katharine Wright Trophy. The trophy was established in 1981 and is awarded annually to an individual who "...has contributed to the success of others or made a personal contribution to the advancement of the art, sport, and science of aviation and space flight over an extended period of time." 

Baddour is being recognized for "... her lifelong personal commitment to the advancement of all who pursue aviation careers and her tireless efforts in educating the aviation community and general public." 

F or the past 64 years, Baddour has dedicated herself to aviation. She has experience as a pilot in 42 types of aircraft and for 20 years, worked as a research pilot for Lincoln Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - the first female pilot employed by the Lab. She was assigned to programs for the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration, including work as an early tester of the Global Positioning System (GPS). Baddour has competed in 16 air races, beginning in 1954, and set 27 world speed records between 1985 and 1991. 

She has served as an active leader and helped to establish scholarship programs at variety of aviation organizations, including the Society of Experimental Test Pilots, the Aero Club of New England, the Ninety-Nines, the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum, and Daniel Webster College. Throughout her work with these organizations, Baddour has stood behind countless individuals, helping them to achieve their career goals by leading them through inspiration, scholarship, and guidance. 

"I think Katharine Wright, and indeed all members of the Wright family, would be delighted by the selection of Anne Bridge Baddour to receive this award," stated Greg Principato, President and CEO, NAA. "The essence of this award is not only great achievement in one's own right, but recognition of the extra effort it takes to make all around you better each day. Anne exemplifies what this award means." 

"I want to thank the National Aeronautic Association for selecting me to receive this prestigious national award. I am truly honored," said Baddour. "We must do all we can to assist those who follow us to achieve their aviation ambitions." 

The Katharine Wright Trophy will be presented at the NAA Fall Awards Ceremony at a date and location to be determined.


Nicolas Tièche and Laurent Sciboz of the Fribourg Freiburg Challenge Team to Receive 2018 Harmon Trophy

NAA is proud to announce that Nicolas Tièche and Laurent Sciboz of the Fribourg Freiburg Challenge Team have been selected as the recipient of the 2018 Harmon Trophy. The trophy was established in 1926 by Colonel Clifford B. Harmon and is to be awarded annually for "... the most outstanding  international achievement in the art and/or science of aeronautics (ballooning) for a period covering July 1 through June 30 with the art of flying receiving first consideration."
 
Tièche and Sciboz are being recognized "... for their impressive achievement during the Americas Challenge 2017, where they piloted a gas balloon 2,280 miles from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to just outside Labrador City, Newfoundland in 59 hours and 19 minutes."
 
The two pilots founded the Fribourg Freiburg Challenge (FR Challenge) Team in 2015 with the goal to bring competitive gas ballooning to a higher level. They have competed at the Gordon Bennett three times (2015-2017) with top rankings each year. Tièche and Sciboz won the Americas Challenge 2017 with a distance of 2,280 miles, which is less than 15% short of the current world record of 2,626 miles set by David Hempleman-Adams in 2007. Their flight during the Americas Challenge 2017 was done in a competition setting where the take off time and place isn't optimized, as opposed to a record flight where the pilot can choose the ideal take off time based on the weather window.
 
"This performance exceeds any measure of excellence in ballooning," said 2015 Harmon Trophy recipient, Troy Bradley. "To take such a small balloon such a great distance in a race is phenomenal."
 
The Harmon Trophy will be presented at the NAA Fall Awards Ceremony at a date and location to be determined.

Changes Made to NAA Membership & FAI Sporting License Application Process

In March 2018, NAA implemented the following changes to the Membership and FAI Sporting License application process: 

1. All Membership and FAI Sporting Licenses applications must be submitted online.  Hard copy applications will no longer be accepted.  To apply for or renew a Membership and/or FAI Sporting License, please click here.

2. The processing time for all FAI Sporting License applications has been reduced to five (5) business days.  Applications submitted less than five (5) business days prior to a record attempt or competition may not be processed in time.

3. NAA will no longer mail hard copy Membership Cards and/or FAI Sporting Licenses.  Instead, upon approval of the application, an email will be sent containing the appropriate credentials attached.  Members can then print copies of their credentials as they see fit.

NAA hopes that these changes will streamline and enhance the Membership and FAI Sporting License application process.  We look forward to serving you!
  
Aviation Workforce Symposium

T he FAA continues to hear concerns from various segments of the aviation community on real and potential pilot supply issues. There also appear to be a number of budding initiatives to address this challenge in terms of pipelines (attracting new people to aviation careers), pathways (exploring regulatory and innovative ways to accelerate training and qualification), and partnerships (air carrier partnerships with educational and vocational institutions).
 
To maximize the benefits of these initiatives, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and the acting Administrator of the FAA are sponsoring a one-day symposium on September 13, 2018 at the Historic Terminal A at Reagan Airport to explore the scope of issues, share strategies and best practices to address this challenge, and ask the community to develop and commit to specific steps for cooperation and collaboration.
The event will start with a scene-setting panel and continue with three panels:
Priming the Pipeline will explore efforts and ideas for attracting new people to the profession.
Pathways to Proficiency will explore ways to maximize efficiency in training.
Productive Partnerships will review existing and potential intra-community partnerships.  
This event will offer participants an opportunity to share information and best practices on pilot development strategies, as well as generate ideas for collaboration to address these issues.
Please join us and contribute your expertise to this important discussion.  Confirm your participation here  .

President's Message
Greg Principato, 
President & CEO, NAA

A note regarding passing of Senator John McCain:

Many of us across the country are mourning the death of Senator John McCain.  Senator McCain's heroics in war and his courage and tenacity in public office are much remarked upon, and rightly so.  History will remember him as it remembers the likes of Clay and Webster, Vandenburg and Taft, Jackson and Humphrey.  Senator McCain was also an important and prominent figure in aviation.  Not only as a naval aviator himself, but also as a leader on aviation issues in the Senate, including as Chairman of the Senate Aviation Subcommittee.  I got to know him a little bit long ago after serving as executive director of a presidential aviation commission.  Senator McCain and my boss, former Virginia Governor Gerald Baliles, spent a great deal of time together back then talking about how to promote the commission's recommendations; in fact Gov. Baliles was the first witness when Senator McCain took over the aviation subcommittee.  The two men were of different parties, but that NEVER entered the conversation.  As the years passed, we fell out of touch, but my admiration grew as the quality and importance of his work, and of his approach, grew.  We can never have enough John McCains and NAA salutes, with great thanks, his service to this great country of ours.
__________________________________________________________

I enjoy reading, especially about history.  So when a good book about aviation history comes out, I'm in.  David McCullough's Wright Brothers is the best of the recent books.  I also very much enjoyed Julian Guthrie's How to Make a Spaceship, and Christian Davenport's The Space Barons.  So when I saw a note about a new book by Keith O'Brien called Fly Girls I went out and picked it up.  The book is about the effort of many pioneering women pilots to gain acceptance in American aviation in the 1920's and 30's.  It focuses on five in particular:  Amelia Earhart, Ruth Elder, Ruth Nichols, Louise Thaden and Florence Klingensmith.  There are a number of others who play important roles including 1980 NAA Wright Trophy recipient Olive Ann Beech.  A number of men play important roles, especially air race pioneer and promoter Cliff Henderson, namesake of the NAA Henderson Trophy (which we will present next week to former FAA Administrator Michael Huerta).  Also prominently mentioned are the Ninety-Nines, founded in 1929 and still going strong today.
 
I finished the book last night and a few things strike me.  First, the women advocating for a role in air racing (and in other aspects of aviation) were making a simple case:  we have the ability and wherewithal to fly airplanes (and to understand how they are built and maintained).  Yet, they were taken less than seriously, to be kind.  Obviously, the 20's and 30's were a different time.  But if we are honest with ourselves in aviation, we are still not doing all we can to take advantage of the skills and interests of half the population, and we still make distinctions based on gender.  For example, it struck me that many references to Tammie Jo Shults, the Southwest Airlines pilot who landed the plane after the engine explosion that killed a passenger referred to her as a "female pilot" rather than as a pilot, or the pilot.  Contemporaneous references to the likes of Earhart, Thaden, Nichols, Elder and Klingensmith always seemed to refer to their gender.
 
Another passage that struck me was when Olive Ann Beech was hired to work at what became Beechcraft, she was told that with her legs she would do just fine in aviation as a woman.  That's not terribly different from what a generational peer of mine was told early in her aviation career.  Fortunately, those kinds of comments are increasingly rare, but we still have a ways to go.
 
Back in the times covered by the book, the fact that some women were killed racing was often used as an excuse to bar them from competing, even though many men were killed as well.  (Some of the stories about how the planes fell apart under the stress of speed and handling will curl your hair).  There are still some who believe that women are under-represented in STEM fields today because they are somehow less innately capable (a comment made in the not too distant past by a Harvard president).
 
I am MUCH nearer the end of my career than its beginning (or even its middle!).  I remain hopeful things will change noticeably in the time I remain in the industry, and will change greatly in the remainder of my lifetime.  I encourage you to read Fly Girls.  You can see how far we have come, you can think about how far we have yet to go, and you can think about what it is you can do to ensure a future in which all of this nation's talent can be unleashed to build an even better future.

U.S. Skydiver Wins World Championships!
 
U.S. Parachute Team member Nicholas Batsch has once again earned the title of World Champion of Canopy Piloting after beating out 65 other competitors from around the globe at the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale Canopy Piloting World Championships held in Wroclaw, Poland, in July. Batsch repeated his world champion title, winning the overall gold medal, as well as silver in the speed event and bronze in the distance event. Other U.S. Team members also won big: Curt Bartholomew won gold in the accuracy event and the overall bronze medal, and Justin Price won bronze in the freestyle event. The U.S. also brought home the gold in the team event.
 
In canopy piloting, often called "swooping," skydivers fly high-performance parachutes that can generate high vertical and horizontal speeds. By performing speed-inducing maneuvers, these very experienced skydivers can glide inches above the ground for hundreds of yards at speeds approaching 90 mph.
 
The canopy piloting championships include competitions in speed, in which pilots try to fly as quickly as possible through a course; distance, which involves flying as far as possible across the ground; and accuracy, in which canopy pilots must stop on an exact spot for maximum points. In the freestyle event, competitors show off their best dynamic and exciting move as they skim across a pond under their parachutes.
 
In September, the dynamic and visually spectacular skydiving event of freestyle swooping heads to downtown San Diego for the first time ever. The FAI Swoop Freestyle World Championships comes to the Embarcadero Marina Park South September 14-15, as 18 of the world's best canopy pilots will fly their parachutes mere inches above the water at speeds approaching 90 mph. For more information about the event, visit www.swoopfreestyle.com. And to see what swoop freestyle is all about, check out this video.

Secretary Elaine Chao speaks to the Aero Club of Washington

On June 13, 2018, the Aero Club of Washington was pleased to host DOT Secretary Elaine Chao, in her first appearance at the Club.  There were over 400 Club members and guests at this event, including many government guests. The highlight of the luncheon was Secretary Chao's participation in the presentation of the Aero Club Foundation's first scholarship to Ms. J'la Carroll, a graduating senior at Cardozo's TransSTEM Academy. Ms. Carroll will be attending Morgan State University this fall to study engineering, with a focus in aviation.
 
The Aero Club Foundation of Washington has established a scholarship program to provide financial assistance to students enrolled in a District of Columbia public or public charter high school who demonstrate a passion for aviation with the intent to pursue an education and career in aviation or aerospace and have a financial need for scholarship assistance.  The Aero Club and the Foundation are very grateful to their members and partners in the aviation community, who have supported the Foundation and its activities for many years.
