The “Broken Wing” Citation may be presented to any member who through exceptional performance reveals a potentially catastrophic hazard involving an aircraft or who performs with excellence and to training standards during an aircraft emergency. Examples of such performance are the pilot and/or crewmember who exceptionally handles an in-flight aircraft emergency or the mechanic who discovers a serious aircraft flaw that has been previously and/or repeatedly overlooked.
Anyone may nominate a member for a “Broken Wing” Citation by submitting formal correspondence to the chairperson of the Awards & Scholarships Committee for consideration by the committee. Upon approval by a majority of the committee members, the citation will be presented.
The “Broken Wing” Citation will be signed by the President and produced and distributed by personnel at the ALEA Office.
