Airlift/Tanker Association seeks award nominations

The Airlift/Tanker Association sponsors multiple national awards for contributions to the air mobility command airlift and tanker missions. The president of the local A/TA Flight Test Chapter would like to enlist your help getting the word out about the A/TA Hall of Fame Award.

We certainly have many men and women here at Edwards that continue to make invaluable contributions to the aviation community and perhaps one or more might be eligible for this honor.

All nominations should be submitted to the local A/TA Flight Test Chapter. To nominate an individual, contact retired Lt. Col. Steve Rajotte, A/TA Flight Test Chapter President at steven.rajotte@edwards.af.mil. Email submissions should include the individuals name and a brief summary that states why they are a good candidate for the award.

A/TA will interview all potential nominees and submit final nomination packages no later than April 1.

For additional information about A/TA or the Hall of Fame award visit: http://www.atalink.org.
