“This year has had its special challenges for the aviation industry and has highlighted the quality of the very special inductees and organisations that have been in the forefront of the fight against the fires that decimated parts of Australia during the 2019-20 Australian bush fire season.  The part that women have played in the history of aviation in Australia is also something we should all be very proud of, and it is recognised in this year’s awards.”
