The Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Award will honor the elite of business aviation performers from the EMEA region and Russia. The Awards are presented in twelve different categories which cover most aspects of Business Aviation. Nominating an individual or company is an opportunity to ensure that the most outstanding performing companies and individuals become potential award winners. The significance of the Award is underlined by the support EBAA, CEPA and RUBAA.

The deadline for submitting nominations is March 13. The nomination procedure for the Sapphire Pegasus Award is completely open; anyone can nominate a company or individual of which they feel that recognition and honoring is appropriate. Companies or individuals are allowed to nominate themselves; after all, a panel of impartial judges will determine which contender represents the most outstanding performance in a category. “I urge people to make their nominations soon as the deadline is looming,” says Antonia Lukacinova(Tomkova), initiator of the Sapphire Pegasus Award and CEO of Media Tribune marketing and PR Agency, publisher of Aviation Times magazine. “It is a way to show excellence in the industry.”

This panel of judges will have the final word on the selection of the award winners.

“The Sapphire Pegasus Award is an opportunity not only to honor, but also to thank the winners
for their excellent performance,” says Vladimir Petak, the Advisory Board Chairman. “Our panel of judges will aim to remove any subjectivity about performance, and replace it with a thorough and objective review and validation. With many good candidates to choose from, our Advisory Board may have a difficult task rewarding the absolute best. Receiving a Sapphire Pegasus Award will be a great achievement.”
