The Awards

Nominations for federal aviation awards may be submitted by an executive agency of the federal government that owned or hired aircraft during the period from January 1 - December 31, 2011, to perform their non-military missions. GSA will not be giving cash awards this year. However, as in previous years the winners will receive appropriate recognition for their outstanding accomplishments.
