Gillingham Award Presented

Geoffrey McCarthy presented the Kent K. Gillingham Award to the Stott family in late September.

The award was given to Dr. John R. Rollin Stott posthumously based on his significant contributions to ground-based pilot spatial disorientation (SD) training for the UK and NATO. He was recognized as an international expert on situation awareness (SA) and SD issues at the highest levels for over 30 years. [The full award writeup can be found in September’s newsletter.
