Eric Brown Award 2006

The Eric Brown Award for 2006 was given to Michael Wheatley who was a cornerstone of the UK’s helicopter industry for more than quarter of a century, supporting its causes with balance, clarity and common sense. He has represented the helicopter industry on various committees, including the BHAB and General Aviation Manufacturers and Traders Association (now the BBGA). He took a leading role in the support advisory services to the UK police and ambulance authorities, and also to leading financial institutions. Unfortunately, shortly after receiving this reward, Michael passed away, but his reputation for confidentiality and honesty will serve as a beacon and a fine example to everyone in the helicopter industry.
