A local pilot has received one of the highest aviation honors in the country.

Charles Jones of Ozark was presented the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The award is named after the Wright Brothers’ mechanic. Aviation professionals vote on the winner.

Jones says receiving the honor means a lot after 65-years of service. Jones also helped rebuild an airplane in Robert Redford’s movie, “The Great Waldo Pepper”.
