Admiral Luis de Florez Flight Safety Award
This award, presented since 1966, recognizes “outstanding individual contributions to aviation safety, through basic design, device or practice.”
A retired U.S. Navy admiral and a Foundation president in the mid-1950s, de Florez was influential in the development of early flight simulators. He received the 1943 Collier Trophy — one of the most prestigious awards for aeronautical achievement in the United States — for his work in training pilots and flight crews. De Florez established a trust to support the award that carries his name and to provide each recipient with $1,000. The award includes a hand-lettered citation.
If you would like to place a nomination for this prestigious award, please submit a page or two of documentation along with the nominee’s name and contact information. Indicate the reasons why the nominee is worthy of the Award, his or her accomplishments and any previous recognition received. Please include your name, contact information and be sure to provide an email address.
This award has been discontinued as of 2011.
