The aviation and aerospace industries came together March 14 to recognize “great achievers.” The occasion was Aviation Week awarding its sixty-second annual Laureates, a series of awards recognizing achievements in business aviation, commercial, defense, and space.
Others winning Laureates in the Business Aviation category were Garmin International, Gulfstream Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney Canada, and GE. Bombardier won the Grand Laureate in the category for its Global 7500, which, according to the nomination, “sets a new standard for business jets with a four-section cabin, full-size kitchen and dedicated crew suite; advanced fly-by-wire and flight deck technology; and a 7,700-nm range—enough to fly New York-Hong Kong or Singapore-San Francisco.”
“This year’s winners exemplify the spirit and innovations that are transforming our industry to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” said Aviation Week Network Editorial Director Joe Anselmo at the ceremony.
