Air Mobility Command received the Major General Benjamin D. Foulois Memorial Award for its stellar aviation safety program. AMC/SEF accepted this award on April 26 during the PHOENIX Rally at Scott Air Force Base.
“This was a well-deserved achievement!” said Maj Gen John T. Rauch Jr., Air Force Chief of Safety and Commander of the Air Force Safety Center. “Air Mobility Command celebrates another first-rate safety record as a result of its outstanding aviation safety program. Preventing mishaps is a team effort. The sustained commitment of safety personnel, continued leadership support, and involvement of the Airmen and aircrew who accomplish the Air Force mission every day make this possible.”
The Daedalians National Organization presents the Foulois award annually at the Daedalian National Convention to recognize flight safety in all areas of military aviation. The group’s objectives include encouraging and recognizing flight safety and weapons development, as well as recognizing exceptional performance by military aviators. This year marks the 80th year of the award, which began in 1938. AMC won the award in 2017, as well as in 2011 and other prior years.
