Aviation research specialist Conklin & de Decker (Booth No. N2317) has awarded its fourth annual Alan H. Conklin Business Aviation Management scholarship prize to Embry-Riddle senior Christine Dow. She will receive $5,000 toward her studies, having won the award for her passion for aviation.
A dean’s list student with a 4.0 grade-point average, Christine is also vice president of the local chapter of the Women in Aviation and is working on her private pilot’s license.
The annual scholarship honors the firm’s founder Alan Conklin, a U.S. Air Force veteran who served on the NBAA Operations Committee until his retirement in 2003. He died in 2006. The company will present Christine with her prize here at NBAA 2011 in Las Vegas.
Conklin & de Decker has also released its latest Aircraft Cost Evaluator (ACE), an extensive operating costs database that covers more than 500 jet, turboprop, helicopter and piston aircraft. This year’s edition contains seven more aircraft: the Gulfstream G650, the Boeing 737-900ER, Hawker Beechcraft’s King Air 250 and 350iER, the Eurocopter AS350B3e, the Piper Archer LX and the Tecnam P2006T. Another new feature is the addition of Part 91 and Part 135 landing distances. ACE subscribers can also now access cost reports online via any browser, including mobile devices.
