MD Helicopters President & CEO Lynn Tilton was named the “Aviation Entrepreneur of the Year” during 8th Annual Living Legends of Aviation awards ceremony on January 20 in Beverly Hills, Calif. Tilton is founder and CEO of Patriarch Partners, which acquired MD Helicopters in 2005. She is being recognized for returning the company to profitability and bolstering support services for existing MD operators. The Kiddie Hawk Air Academy-produced Living Legends event—which included presentations from actors and aviation enthusiasts such as Morgan Freeman, John Travolta, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks and Kurt Russell—also honored Frank Robinson, founder of Torrance, Calif.-based Robinson Helicopter.
