Brian Roggow Wins Top 8 Award in General Aviation Safety

Prescott Safety Manager Named in Top 8 Nationally

Congratulations to Prescott Aviation Safety Program Manager Brian Roggow, recently selected as a Regional Honoree for the 2017 General Aviation Awards. With eight FAA regions, Roggow is one of the Top-8 nationally in his category, FAA Safety Team (FAAST) Representative of the year.
"I am honored to have been recognized as the Arizona FAASTeam representative of the year and as a national finalist representing the western-pacific region," Roggow said. "I am grateful to many colleagues and friends, both in the Embry-Riddle and aviation communities that have helped facilitate the seminars, workshops and other safety outreach efforts."

Roggow has been with Embry-Riddle since 2005. During that time, his roles have included flight instructor, assistant training manager, check instructor, and adjunct faculty.  He became the aviation safety program manager in 2011.

Roggow initially "fell into" the interim safety manager role due to several key issues that needed timely attention. Facing those challenges opened his eyes to the scope of effective safety management and its interfaces throughout the organization.

"The gratification from reducing organizational risks by proactive means and by helping colleagues and students learn from their mistakes and those of others is immeasurable," Roggow said.

You know WHERE you’re going. We help you GET THERE.
