Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) director of aviation safety Mark Skidmore has been named a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).
RAeS Australian Division president John Vincent presented Skidmore with his Fellow certificate at the recently concluded 2015 Safeskies conference in Canberra.
Vincent said the Fellow was the highest grade of membership at the RaeS and awarded to those who had demonstrated an outstanding contribution, reached a position of high responsibility in an influentional role or had a long experience of high quality in the profession of aeronautics or aerospace, adding that the CASA boss “readily met these requirements”.
Skidmore said it was an honour to have been recognised by the Royal Aeronautical Society as a Fellow.
“I look forward to being able to support the ideals of the society and further aviation safety in this great nation of ours,” Skidmore said.
