The NBAA Gold Wing Award for Journalism Excellence is presented annually for excellent, accurate and insightful reporting on issues related to business aviation, by trade or nontrade media. The award recognizes journalism’s important role in reporting the significant contributions of business aviation to the national economy.

This is an opportunity for journalists to showcase their most important work, increase awareness of their publisher and demonstrate the true value of journalism and business aviation.
