Helicopter Association International’s mission is to advance the helicopter as a safe, effective method of commerce. That mission charges each of us to commit ourselves to promoting the highest level of safety and efficiency. This culture of professionalism is nurtured when we encourage and recognize outstanding achievement and contributions made by individuals and organizations. Each year the “Salute to Excellence” Awards program recognizes these outstanding achievements.
The W.A. (Dub) Blessing Certified Flight Instructor of the Year Award is one such award. This award recognizes superlative contributions by a helicopter flight instructor in upholding high standards of excellence.
What better way to ensure continuing high standards within our industry than by officially recognizing someone who instills those standards in new pilots from their very first day – nominate today!
