In partnership with HealthNet Aeromedical Services, we at Air Methods Corporation are pleased to announce that long-serving Aircraft Mechanic Mark Godbey has been named the recipient of the 2021 Association of Air Medical Services Transport Mechanic Award of Excellence. 

The award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to the safe operation of medical transport vehicles or the improvement of safe maintenance procedures of medical transport vehicles. Through his decades of service, Mark has earned a position of trust among his flight teams. They know that when they fly in a helicopter maintained by him that the aircraft is absolutely, without question, safe and ready to go. His commitment to his profession, his colleagues, and his community is evident in everything he does, and we are so honored give him this esteemed award.

Mark has been a stalwart in the program and for the entire Air Methods maintenance team. Daily, he demonstrates his commitment to protecting the lives of everyone on board the aircraft and is a shining example of professional expertise and a role-model for aircraft mechanics in the industry. We are proud to work with HealthNet and are truly honored to have Mark as a member of Air Methods family.

“I couldn’t be as successful as I’ve been without the support of my family, coworkers and the leadership of Air Methods and HealthNet Aeromedical. I get the support I need to do my job and do it to the best of my ability,” said Mark Godbey. “Every day, I see patients fly in and out of the hospital in the aircraft I maintain. I am proud to be part of the team that can help them in their greatest hour of need. This award is such an honor and is a testament to our awesome team and the work we do to make an impact in my community and the industry.”

Mark will be presented with the honor during the Association of Air medical Services’ Air Medical Transport Conference taking place in Fort Worth, Texas in October.
