Award Presented Annually To Recognize Aviation Education
The National Aeronautic Association (NAA) presented the prestigious Frank G. Brewer Trophy for Aviation Education to John and Martha King at its Fall Awards Banquet held November 13 in Arlington, VA near Washington, D.C. The award was presented to the Kings “…for their passion and dedication in making aviation knowledge more accessible to pilots worldwide by combining elegant technology with clear, fun teaching featuring courseware that simplifies complex concepts for students.” The Brewer Trophy is presented annually for significant contributions of enduring value to aerospace education in the United States.
Jonathan Gaffney, President and CEO of the National Aeronautic Association and Chairman of the Selection Committee, said “We’re very proud of accomplishments of Martha and John King and all they have done to support aviation and aerospace education in the United States. They are truly some of the great ambassadors of the excitement and opportunity which exists in our industry.”
“Thanks to the National Aeronautic Association for celebrating aviation achievements. The NAA truly advances not only aviation, but all achievement, because aviation is humankind’s most inspiring achievement," commented Martha. “We are deeply honored to be selected for this award. It inspires and motivates us as we continue our mission of making aviation accessible by taking complex material, simplifying, clarifying and making it fun to learn," concluded John.
King Schools offers over 90 courses for pilots from student through professional/turbine pilot.
