NBAA awarded its 2012 Gold Wing Award for reporting excellence to AIN senior editor Matt Thurber here at the Convention yesterday. The award recognizes Thurber’s article, “Saving Lives, One Flight at a Time,” about business aviation’s role in organ transport, published in the August/September 2011 issue of AIN Publications’ Business Jet Traveler. The article highlights the key role that chartered aircraft and their operators play in the swift and reliable delivery of human organs for transplants.
