Wings of Business Award laureates (for accomplishments in 2018) will be announced on 22 February 2019 at the awarding ceremony. The Award is given for the highest achievements in the field of business aviation. The Award was established by the Russian United Business Aviation Association (RUBAA).
The winners in 13 categories, which include Business Aviation Airline, General Aviation Operator (International Participation), Foreign Business Aviation Airline, Business Aviation Operator – Helicopters (Passenger Transportation), Business Aviation Infrastructure (Terminals and Hangar Facilities), Business Aviation Infrastructure – Heliports, Ground Handling Company, Maintenance Company (International Participation), Flight Support Company (International Participation), Broker Company, Service Company in Business Aviation, Catering for Business Aviation, Project of the Year in Business Aviation in Russia (International Participation), will be announced. The winner in the For Outstanding Contribution to the Business Aviation Development in Russia category will be chosen out of competition.
In previous years, there were many disputes regarding the awarding procedure. Sometimes IT solutions carried more weight than business accomplishments or reputation. And yet each winner in the first awarding ceremonies was personally selected by RUBAA and Association Board members.
This year you will have an opportunity to “like” a participant of your choice in each category. But the Award Expert Council will make the final decision. The Expert Council will include 11 persons chosen by RUBAA members. We will be conducting surveys among the Association members to collect information about the Expert Council nominees, and the Council itself will be created by majority vote. Award winners will be announced at the ceremony. This will allow to keep the names of the winners in secret until the very last moment.
Online voting (total number of “likes” given to each participant) will be for reference only. At its discretion, the Expert Council might consider this information.
We at RUBAA would like to invite everyone to take part in the Award and also to invite the Association members to participate in the Expert Council’s elections. We wish you every success!
