Today, the Aero Club of Washington joins our colleagues in the aerospace community to grieve the loss of former NASA astronaut and space pioneer Major General Michael Collins who passed away today at the age of 90. The Aero Club was thrilled to honor Major General Collins at the 2019 Wright Memorial Dinner, where he received the National Aeronautic Association’s highest honor, the Wright Brothers Memorial Trophy. Collins, who flew on the Gemini 10 and Apollo 11 missions, was a witty, eloquent, storyteller, who passionately and tirelessly advocated for space exploration. He leaves behind a legacy of lifelong dedication to aerospace and public service, both as a pioneering astronaut and inspired director of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.

“It's the dawn of a new age in #aerospace. You'll notice I didn't say #aviation, really, it’s aerospace. We're seeing a tremendous level of diversity, innovation, and opportunity in this field. The opportunity is there, and it's up to us to grab it. So let's reinvigorate our relationships. Let's take the lessons that we have learned over the past few years and apply them to develop a new set of solutions for our industry. We’ll take the best and leave the rest.” - Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Steve Dickson at Aero Club of Washington
FAA Administrator Steve Dickson spoke to the Aero Club of Washington today about the aviation industry’s key role in the nation’s recovery from the COVID-19 public health emergency. “Aviation will be the key to jump-starting our economy again, in part by getting COVID-19 vaccines from factories to people. Once we’re freely moving around the world, aviation will again fundamentally redefine geographic boundaries and connect people and cultures from every corner of the planet.” #aviation #COVID19 #AviationDelivers
