Because of what our Repair Station found in the past, Cessna is making safer aircraft in the future.
Cincinnati, OH (Vocus) May 14, 2008
Michelle Schopp, Director of Technical Services at EJM, received FAA’s “Good Friend” award at a special ceremony held at EJM’s headquarters at Lunken Airport in Cincinnati, OH on April 23, 2008. The award, presented by Debra Joiner, Manager of the FAA’s Cincinnati Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), was in recognition of Ms. Schopp’s ground breaking work on the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) program. Said Ms. Joiner, “Michelle has done a tremendous amount of work and accomplished things that no one else has been able to accomplish.” In a letter written by Frederick T. Walker, Manager, Flight Standards Division of the FAA’s Central Region, both Ms. Schopp and Executive Jet Management were recognized for the “exceptional contributions made to the mission of the Flight Standards Office concerning the issue of Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) devices.” As a result of these efforts, the FAA Flight Standards Division has new EFB authorization guidance which is being implemented nationwide.
At the same ceremony, EJM’s Repair Station received a “Certificate of Appreciation” for its contributions to aviation safety through the Service Difficulty Reporting (SDR) program. This program provides a communications vehicle where specific safety issues are identified and submitted to the FAA and can result in Safety Recommendations made to aircraft manufacturers. Debra Joiner said, “implementation of Safety Recommendations (first identified by EJM) resulted in safety changes affecting the entire industry.”
Accepting on behalf of EJM were Benjamin J. Murray, President and CEO, Jim Bergman, Cessna Citation Program Manager and Al Luken, Chief Inspector. “(The SDR program) makes Executive Jet Management better and the industry better,” said Bergman. “Because of what our Repair Station found in the past, Cessna is making safer aircraft in the future.”
Murray said, “Being recognized by the FAA affirms the emphasis we place on high quality standards for all our employees. We are very proud of Michelle’s achievements and of all the members of the EJM maintenance team.”
