Over decades of existence, the aviation industry has experienced its fair share of the decline in performance and global development. The business aviation sector at some point recorded a decline in the number of professional pilots and active holders in the sector. This led to tremendous lapses in production and service delivery. Despite this setback, some individuals and companies stood their ground made a priority to revive the industry, ramp up its operations and sustain the reputation of responsive aviation industry. These individuals didn’t relent in their resolve, and their persistent individual and collective efforts are the driving force behind the successes we are enjoying today. Sapphire Pegasus awards initiated this globally applauded series of awards to highlight and appreciate these marvels of the aviation industry.
