DeKalb County Airport

Steve McMurray, Century Aviation’s Director of Maintenance, has received the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in recognition of more than 50 years of aviation maintenance experience. It was presented Friday afternoon at DeKalb County Airport by George Ballard, FAA Safety Program Manager in the Indianapolis Flight Standards Office. The Charles Taylor Award is the most prestigious award presented by the FAA to an aviation maintenance technician. The award, named in honor of Charles Taylor, the first aviation mechanic in powered flight, recognizes the lifetime accomplishments of senior mechanics. Taylor served as the Wright brothers’ mechanic and is credited with designing and building the engine for the 1903 Wright Flyer, the first aircraft to achieve heavier-than-air flight. “We are thrilled that the FAA has recognized Steve for his outstanding career,” said Lara Gaerte, CEO of Century Aviation. “The Charles Taylor Award recognizes lifetime achievements in the aviation maintenance field; we are truly proud that Steve is part of our organization.” ...
