Friday Update, July 20

Daily Photo

Fifty years of safe flying earned George Brown, 78, of Georgetown special recognition during a ceremony last Friday at the Georgetown airport. FAA Safety Team program manager Ryan Newman flew up from San Antonio to present the award and give a brief overview of Mr. Brown's flying career before an audience of airport folk and aviation friends. Mr. Newman likened the honor to a "lifetime achievement award" saying that about 4,800 awards have been made during the time of the program. Mr. Brown began flying in 1966, paying for lessons with paper route earnings. Later, after a short pause, he finished training and earned his Private Pilot's single-engine license in November, 1967, at Redbird Airport in south Dallas. Twenty years later, after additional training and testing, he earned his multi-engine license. Nowadays he and wife, Kathryn, fly the airways in their pristine 1980, twin-engine Beechcraft Baron. Mr. Brown, semi-retired, now writes and edits flying and technical articles for the American Beechcraft Society's monthly magazine. From left, Ryan Newman, George and Kathryn Brown. Clark Thurmond
