Mr. Aviation Safety

I'm in Brussels as the 2015 Automation Safety Forum is half way done! This has been an amazing event and the people incredible. I am honored to be among them. Due to a tight schedule (and homework) posting will come later. Thus today I'm going to share a picture of a gentlemen that I'm sitting beside during the event. Do you know he is?

Today he received an honorable mention for what he did for Aviation Safety, followed by a standing ovation. A brilliant inventor. He is also my neighbor, living in Bellevue WA. So, can you guess who this is, and what impact he has made on aviation safety, and how many lives he has saved? Clue: his invention also pops up in Flight For Safety!

Enjoy the journey!
