Tough Job - But I'm Definitely Impressed

I think it's safe to say, that most people question politicians in DC. No matter what party you belong to, it can be frustrating listening to political bickering that comes out of the beltway at times. However, we occasionally meet some people in DC that are really making a difference, stand up for what they believe in, and aren't afraid to fight for what they believe in. Marion Blakey was recently named the recipient of the 2013 Wright Brothers Memorial Trophy. The Honorable Blakey has served at the top of the NTSB, Administrator of the FAA, and currently as the President of AIA. If you read about some of the issues she faced at the FAA, you can see it wasn't a walk in the park, but I really respect everything that she has done in our industry. So congrats Ms. Blakey on your award this year!
