Lyn Burks, Rotorcraft Pro Editor In Chief Chosen for HAI Salute To Excellence Award

Rotorcraft Pro Media Network (RPMN) is pleased to announce their Editor In Chief; Lyn Burks was recently selected as the recipient of Helicopter Association International’s “Excellence in Communications” award. Each year HAI, through its Salute to Excellence Awards Program recognizes the individual or organization achieving the most creative and distinct dissemination of information about the helicopter.

For over 50 years, HAI has recognized the outstanding achievements and exceptional merits of individuals and organizations through the Salute to Excellence Awards program.  By acknowledging exceptional individuals and organizations, the Salute to Excellence program encourages the highest standards of professionalism in the helicopter industry.

Lyn began his aviation career over 20 years ago and has worked as a pilot in various sectors of the industry.  During this time, he has been using his talents and experience to help shape the helicopter culture through media, education and professionalism. Most notably, he has been helping mentor industry professionals with his career development program.  This program is fostered through a series of online eBooks and the ever growing “HeliSuccess” seminar.  The seminar has become so popular that HAI has invited Lyn to present a version of “HeliSuccess” as part of the HeliExpo Educational Series.

Recently, Lyn was also promoted to Editor In Chief of Rotorcraft Pro Magazine.  He has been serving in the capacity of Online Editor for the last several years, but has taken on a much larger role and presence within RPMN.  Lyn has brought a unique approach to the magazine using his talents to combine video with written features.  As owner/developer of the several popular industry websites, Justhelicopters.com, VerticalReference.com and Justhelicopters.tv, he has taken media in the helicopter industry to the next level by including video in the forefront of his message.

Lyn Burks has a strong passion and dedication toward seeking out the most relevant content related to today’s events.  He is constantly searching for new and innovative ways to communicate with a large and dynamic demographic base.  His goal is to present the helicopter community a variety of media that meets their interests and ever changing lifestyles.  These are the qualities that make Lyn’s work relevant and unique, which earned him the well deserved title of HAI’s 2012 “Excellence in Communications” recipient.
