Trammell, Waugh To Be Honored by NBAA
NBAA’s board of directors yesterday selected Archie Trammell–a weather radar specialist, aviation journalist and lifelong safety advocate–as the recipient of the 2006 NBAA Award for Meritorious Service to Aviation. The board also chose to bestow FlightSafety International veteran James Waugh Jr. with the 2006 NBAA John P. “Jack” Doswell Award. The meritorious service award is “NBAA’s most distinguished honor, presented annually to an individual who, by virtue of a lifetime of personal dedication, has made significant, identifiable contributions that have materially advanced aviation interests.” The Doswell Award is granted for “lifelong individual achievement on behalf of and in support of the aims, goals and objectives of business aviation.” Trammell is well known for having contributed his vast knowledge of radar and convective weather systems toward the advancement and adoption of safe flying technologies and procedures for more than a half century. Waugh, the executive vice president of FlightSafety, has devoted much of his life to business aviation safety. Trammell and Waugh will receive their awards during the NBAA Convention, to be held October 17 to 19 in Orlando, Fla.
