Metro Aviation Regional Safety Manager Honored by FAA


February 5, 2020

To say that Don Lambert has a wealth of experience and knowledge is an understatement.  Since 1970, he has served in various maintenance and safety roles for companies like Airbus (then MBB and Eurocopter), Bell Helicopters, CJ Systems Aviation Group and Air Methods.  Today, he is a Regional Safety Manager for Metro Aviation and the proud recipient of the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award.

Half a century in the field more than qualifies Don for the award, which recognizes the lifetime accomplishments of senior mechanics.  As the first aviation mechanic in powered flight, Charles Taylor is credited with designing and building the engine for the first successful aircraft. 

“I have known Don for 42 years and he has always maintained aircraft in a safe and professional manner,” said Metro Managing Director Milton Geltz.  “He is an outstanding individual, well respected in the aviation community, and very deserving of this award.”

Don also gives back to the industry as Chairman of the HAI Technical and Maintenance Committee.  Please join us in congratulating Don on an outstanding career and this great achievement.
