Falcon Aviation Academy recently honored Bill Borchert for receiving The Wright Brothers “Master Pilot Award” presented by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Borchert was an instructor in the Air Force from 1965-1970, then he flew with Delta from 1970-2002 flying almost every airplane in Deltas fleet. In 2009 he became involved with Falcon Aviation Academy as an investor and then began to take on larger roles as instructor and eventually a chief pilot of the company’s high performance program.

According to the FAA, The Wright Brothers “Master Pilot Award” recognizes pilots who have demonstrated professionalism, skill and aviation expertise by maintaining safe operations for 50 or more years. Recipients are awarded a certificate and a lapel pin and are recognized in the Wright Brothers “Master Pilot Award” - Roll of Honor.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recognizes the efforts of pilots who have followed and continue to follow the precaution and awareness of safe flight operations. Most of all, the FAA recognizes pilots who have contributed and maintained safe flight operations for 50 or more consecutive years of piloting aircraft.
