Three leading CAA figures have been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for their services to aviation.
Andy Cohen, head of Atol and crisis management, David Kendrick, manager of airline licensing, and Dr Sally Evans, chief medical officer, have been awarded MBEs, Dr Evans’ specifically for services to aviation medicine.
Dame Deirdre Hutton, CAA chair, said: “Everyone at the CAA joins me in warmly welcoming the awards for Andrew Cohen, Dr Sally Evans and David Kendrick.
“All three have served with distinction and thoroughly deserve this accolade having made a significant contribution to UK civil aviation.”
Other recipients include Border Force officials Rachelle Freeguard and Zoe Murphy.
Freeguard, who works at Gatwick airport, is honoured for services to the prevention of trafficking and border security, while Murphy, who works at Heathrow airport, is recognised for services to border security and humanitarian operations.
