Dr. Irving Statler receives the Wesley L. McDonald Distinguished Statesman of Aviation Award
(Oct 3, 2012)
Dr. Irving Statler from the Human Systems Integration Division is the recipient of the National Aeronautics Association's Distinguished Statesman of Aviation award for 2012. This award is based on Dr. Statler's outstanding contributions to aviation safety through research and innovation in fields that include stability and control, data analysis and monitoring, and human factors. Much of Dr. Statler's career has been in direct service to his country including the Army Air Corps during World War II, serving as a Research Scientist for the Army, Director of the NATO Advisory Group for Aerospace R&D, and as a NASA Research Scientist. His pioneering work in aviation safety has positively influenced at least two generations of researchers and the aviation industry to move from a forensic approach to a prognostic approach.

The Wesley L. McDonald Distinguished Statesman of Aviation Award was established in 1954 to honor outstanding Americans, who, by their efforts over a period of years, have made contributions of significant value to aeronautics, and have reflected credit upon America and themselves.

The award will be presented at the Annual Fall Awards Banquet to be held on Tuesday, November 13th, 2012, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott.
