Former Cessna Aircraft chairman Russ Meyer received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Carol B. Hallett Award last week at an anual aviation summit.
Meyer was recognized for more than four decades of service and achievement in aviation.
“Russ’s critical leadership role at the intersection of aviation, business, policy and philanthropy exemplifies the spirit of the Chamber and all it embodies,” Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association senior vice president of government affairs Melissa Rudinger said at the summit, according to an account from the National Business Aviation Association.
Meyer previously received the NBAA’s Meritorious Service to Aviation Award and many others.
In his remarks, Meyer called for unity in the aviation community and encouraged all segments to work together, the NBAA said.
“We should work together, because we need each other – and our country needs us,” he said.
