General aviation advocate and former Cessna Aircraft chief Russ Meyer received the Wichita Aero Club Trophy on Saturday. In introducing Meyer before he was bestowed with the Wichita Aero Club’s highest honor, NBAA chairman and CEO Ed Bolen called him “one of the most significant figures in general aviation history.” Meyer joined Cessna in 1974, and over his 31-year tenure there the Wichita company delivered 67,000 aircraft. He also worked to establish the FAA’s Airport and Airway Trust Fund in 1970 and was central to the passage of the General Aviation Revitalization Act in 1994.
