Metro Aviation Standardization and Compliance Manager Glen Girard recently received the award for his contribution to the aviation industry. The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award is the most prestigious award issued by the FAA to pilots certified under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61.

The award recognizes pilots who have exhibited professionalism, skill, and aviation expertise for at least 50 years while piloting aircraft as “Master Pilots.”

Girard first joined the Metro Aviation family in 2014 as the Assistant Director of Training for the Helicopter Flight Training Center. In that role, Girard was responsible for ground and simulator instruction, crew and air medical resource management, course development, and records review. In the years since, he has transferred from the Training Center to Operations, ensuring pilots are properly trained and compliant with all regulations.

There's a need to educate and train airport professionals in a variety of fields. Find out why in  Gateway Opportunities: Airport Careers.

Girard has a strong military background and has spent the majority of his career training pilots in both the military and civilian sectors.
