 Executive Director shall forward those accounts to the MMOPA Safety Committee for consideration
for the Broken Wings Award.
The Safety Committee will review and analyze the entries (at the meeting two months prior to
the MMOPA Convention) and determine pilots shall receive the Broken Wings Award, which shall then be presented at the subsequent MMOPA Convention.
One of the best ways to learn
is by example, and the MMOPA community is full of pilots who set the bar high in handling adversity
in flight. The Safety Committee is excited to publicly honor those who overcame in those tough situations, with the hope and anticipation that it will help others do the same.
Characteristics of events which deserve the Broken Wing Award are:
• The occurrence must be from an in-f light situation;
• The pilot must show extraordinary skill, judgment, and technique during an in-flight emergency;
• A successful landing must have occurred;
• Extremecircumstanceswhichmight have led to catastrophic results must have existed;
• The pilot cannot have induced the emergency situation through neglect, poor decision-making, or ill intent.
