Paragon Aviation Group Announces 2019 Member Awards at NBAA-BACE

The 2019 Paragon Network FBO Member of The Year was awarded to Odyssey Aviation Bahamas based in Nassau, BAH (MYNN) and Exuma, BAH (MYEF). With Hurricane Dorian hitting the Bahamas this year, Odyssey Aviation was even more worthy of this prestigious award because of the tremendous relief efforts they provided.

Serving as a fully-functioning evacuation center, disaster relief logistics center and an evacuee welcome center, Odyssey Aviation worked countless hours to get aircraft in and out transporting people, medical supplies, food and other necessities. It is without a doubt, that the Bahamian lives saved during this national disaster was due in part to the outstanding efforts of the team at Odyssey Aviation.

The second award, FBO Manager of the Year, is voted on by Paragon Aviation Group Corporate. This year’s recipient was Julie O’Brien, General Manager at ProJet Aviation (KJYO).

“Julie goes above and beyond from hosting our Leadership Meeting this year to hosting the annual Aviation Education Expo that provides scholarships to students,” said Megan Barnes, President of Paragon Aviation Group.

“She also had a pivotal role in organizing her base tenants to help with the Hurricane Dorian relief efforts. Julie is an asset to our network and is so well-liked by all.” The winner of the 2019 Award of Excellence went to Angela Flores, Customer Service Supervisor at FlightLevel Aviation (KOQU).

“There is always a lot of competition for this prestigious award which is why it is so deserving that it goes to Angela,” said Scott Jefvert, Director of Sales for Paragon Aviation Group.

“She is an active participant in our monthly CSM calls, very responsive to her customers’ needs and always willing to help her fellow FBO members.”
