September 10, 2008

NBAA will honor AOPA President Phil Boyer with its prestigious Meritorious Service to Aviation Award during NBAA’s annual convention next month.

“Phil Boyer is among the most respected, knowledgeable, and effective figures in the history of general aviation,” said Ed Bolen, NBAA president and CEO. “Phil’s contributions have greatly benefitted us all, and we thank him for his many years of leadership and service.”

Boyer will be recognized for his “tremendously effective advocacy and promotion of general aviation” during his 18 years in AOPA’s left seat. NBAA made particular note of his tenacious leadership of the fight against general aviation user fees.

The award will be presented during NBAA’s sixty-first Annual Meeting and Convention, from Oct. 6 through 8 in Orlando, Fla.
