Washington, DC – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) is pleased to announce that Peter Ingleton, director of liaison to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), will be honored with the 2013 NBAA John P. “Jack” Doswell Award recognizing exemplary service to the global business aviation community. Ingleton will receive the award during a reception at the 2013 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2013) to be held Oct. 22 to 24 in Las Vegas, NV.
Ingleton’s career in the aviation industry spans more than 40 years, much of that time spent working in the ICAO program on the development of international aviation regulatory policy. Shortly after entering the workforce, he joined the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and remained with that organization until joining IBAC in 1997.
“In the time since he joined IBAC with a nod and a handshake, Peter has unswervingly shared the tremendous breadth and depth of his knowledge as a resource to business aviation around the world,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “He has been the link that keeps ICAO and its state representatives knowledgeable about business aviation, and in turn has kept business aviation current with evolving international rules and policy that affect all pilots.”
Ingleton has become an internationally renowned voice in the development of policy standards and recommended practices for the global aviation system, participating on a large number of ICAO panels responsible for aircraft operations and technical developments. He has extensive knowledge and experience in technical specialties such as those for aircraft operations, air traffic services and aeronautical telecommunications.
A native of Australia, Ingleton has a background in electrical engineering.
NBAA established the Doswell award in 1987 to recognize lifelong individual achievement on behalf of and in support of the aims, goals and objectives of business aviation. It is named for Jack Doswell, a renowned World War II combat veteran, executive pilot and flight operations director who was actively involved in many NBAA committees and initiatives throughout the 1970s, and whose gifts inspired a high standard of involvement in the business aviation community.
The NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition is the world’s largest convention and trade event dedicated solely to business aviation, and the premier annual meeting place for the global business aviation community. The event represents the most productive and efficient opportunity for the industry to conduct business, make buying decisions and set the stage for business aviation activity for the year ahead.
