The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award is the most prestigious award the FAA issues to pilots certified under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61. This award is named after the Wright Brothers, the first US pilots, to recognize individuals who have exhibited professionalism, skill, and aviation expertise for at least 50 years while piloting aircraft as “Master Pilots”.
Tim received a distinctive certificate and lapel pin in a ceremony conducted by representatives of the FAA. His name and city and state of residence will be added to the “Roll of Honor” located at https://www.faasafety.gov/content/MasterPilot/RecipientList.aspx.
