McIntyre and Scott earn NBAA recognition
Mark McIntyre and Shawn Scott are recognised with NBAA's Guy Gribble Appreciation Award for their leadership and commitment to international operations and safety.

NBAA recently named Mark McIntyre and Shawn Scott recipients of its International Operators Committee Guy Gribble Appreciation Award, which recognises individuals for their exemplary contributions and dedication to international business aviation operations.

Both McIntyre, CAM fellow and director of flight operations at Mente and Scott, co-founder of Scott IPC, are longtime members of NBAA's International Operators Committee.

Recipients must demonstrate leadership and commitment to international operations and safety, contributions to NBAA and the business aviation industry in general and passionate involvement in the business aviation industry.

NBAA director of flight operations and regulations Brian Koester, CAM says: "In recognition of Guy's incredible contribution to the committee over the years, we thought it was appropriate to honour his legacy by recognising others who have given contributions not just to the committee, but to the overall international business aviation community. Mark and Shawn embody the spirit of Guy's contributions to give of themselves to the community."

"I knew Guy Gribble and was inspired by the energy, wisdom and passion he brought to the International Operators Committee and the International Operators Conference," says McIntyre. "To be recognised by other committee members as someone that approached Guy's level of contribution is both humbling and gratifying."

Scott adds: "There are so many that have gone before me with deep dedication and commitment to our international aviation community, I am deeply humbled by what this honour means. To be recognised at this level is truly a highlight in my career.

"I use 'humble' because although I feel I have contributed a small part to the overall safety and good of the IOC goals, to some I have in their eyes made a larger contribution of safety and knowledge to my peers."

McIntyre describes how Guy's influence is reflected by the spirit of the NBAA International Operators Conference and encouraged other business aviation professionals to step into volunteer and mentor roles: "Guy had a fantastic sense of humour and would bring that to his presentations. We rely on volunteers to serve on committees, give presentations and act as subject matter experts. If you have a passion and you're willing to bring that forth, it's always valued and appreciated. Everyone has a unique experience to share, and we are a better industry because of it."
