Former Cessna Aircraft chairman and CEO Russ Meyer received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Carol B. Hallett Award on Thursday. “Russ’s critical leadership role at the intersection of aviation, business, policy and philanthropy exemplifies the spirit of the Chamber and all it embodies,” said AOPA senior vice president of government affairs Melissa Rudinger. Meyer, who served as a fighter pilot with both the USAF and USMC and spent more than three decades at Cessna, previously received NBAA’s Meritorious Service to Aviation Award, among many other accolades.
