IATSBA is proud to announce that the 2014 Joseph T. Nall Safety Award will go to Randy Greene, Chief Executive Officer of Safeflight Instrument Corporation, and his father Leonard Greene who started the company.

Leonard Greene is best known for inventing the first stall warning system. The company he founded, Safeflight Instrument Corporation, has designed and developed not only stall warning systems, but many other safety systems and its substantial contributions to aviation safety continue today under the leadership of Leonard’s son, Randy Greene. The safety systems pioneered by Safeflight include:

  • Stall Warning
  • Autothrottles
  • Windshear Warning
  • Ground Proximity
  • Powerline Collision Warning

Leonard Greene was also a co-founder of the Corporate Angel Network, an organization that arranges free rides aboard corporate planes for cancer patients traveling for treatment.
Randall (Randy) Greene, replaced his father as president and chief executive officer after he lost his brother Don in the 9/11 attacks. Randy is a very experienced pilot who had led projects at Bendix Avionics and AlliedSignal Aerospace and had developed a new version of the Rockwell Commander aircraft. Randy has continued his father’s work and has himself made very substantial contributions to aviation safety.
