NBAA also awarded its 2004 Gold Wing Awards, presented annually for excellent, accurate and insightful reporting of issues related to the business aviation industry. In the trade press category, Fred George of Business and Commercial Aviation magazine received the Gold Wing Award for his story regarding safety issues and very light jets.
