The Award honors Leonard Greene, Founder and Randall Greene President and CEO of Safe Flight for their contributions to aviation safety.
Safe Flight Instrument Corporation is a leading supplier of aviation safety and flight performance systems. The company was founded in 1946 by Leonard Greene with the launch of his innovative concept to provide a warning to the pilot of an impending aerodynamic stall. The wing leading edge flow measurement device that he invented is installed on the vast majority of the world’s fixed-wing aircraft of all types – light personal aircraft, corporate jets, commercial and military transports and tactical/fighter aircraft – from two-seat trainers through airline and military transports.
The Award is named in memory of Joseph T. Nall, who served as a Member of the National Transportation Safety Board from 1986 until his untimely death in 1989 while on official NTSB business in Caracas, Venezuela. The Nall Award is given annually and seeks to recognize those individuals who have made significant contributions to aviation and transportation safety.
