The Leo Weston Award for Excellence in Government Service

First bestowed on Leo Weston himself in 2005, the Weston award honors an instrumental figure in ARSA’s birth by recognizing individuals who embody his commitment to the industry’s safety and success.

As an FAA official, Weston had advocated for the creation of an organization to represent the interest of maintenance providers. Since then – across a long career of professional and personal dedication to public good – he has been a great inspiration for the association and its members. In his honor, ARSA regularly recognizes individuals who have made a lasting impact on the practice of good government.

The Weston Award is celebrated as part of ARSA’s Annual Repair Symposium held in Arlington, Virginia. The symposium provides a venue for association members and invited guests from around the world to network and discuss issues that matter to the aviation maintenance industry. It is the perfect time to respect the history of the repair station community and honor the good works of those who support it.
