The General Aviation
Manufacturers Association (GAMA) has selected Joshua Bochnowski, a
senior at Purdue University, as the 2004 Dr. Harold S. Wood Award
for Excellence recipient. “GAMA is pleased to name Joshua
Bochnowski as this year’s recipient for his outstanding
leadership and unwavering commitment in pursing a career in
aviation,” said GAMA President & CEO Ed Bolen.
The annual award, in honor of Dr. Harold S. Wood, founder and
past executive director of the National Intercollegiate Flying
Association (NIFA), recognizes a top student enrolled in a NIFA
member school who demonstrates academic excellence while promoting
aviation on campus as well as in the community.
Joshua Bochnowski is a pilot with a 3.97 GPA at Purdue
University School of Aviation. A member of the University Flight
Team, he has participated in NIFA competition for the past three
years and is currently the coach of the Navigation Event.
Bochnowski is one of only four students chosen to co- pilot the
university’s Beechjet. He currently interns in the training
center at Chautauqua Airlines, and was formerly the first ever
corporate aviation intern for The Coca-Cola Company. As the public
relations officer of the Purdue School of Aviation Technology
Student Council, he has organized fundraisers and blood drives, as
well as overseeing aviation education for schoolchildren in the
community. Borchowski has been on the Honor’s list every year
while at Purdue and is a volunteer tutor through the Phi Eta Sigma
Scholastic Fraternity. Upon finishing his degree at Purdue, Mr.
Borchowski hopes to be a flight instructor.
