2005 HALL OF FAME HONOREES
Don Maguire is best remembered for his expertise with the 47 and his support for B47HA. Maguire has a wide range of experiences from bush pilot to exec. Don was a sounding board for BHT and his excellent relationship with President Rhodes forged the association into an effective tool to control bogus parts and shoddy maintenance. His best advice was to always keep the association focused on the singular agenda of promoting the Bell 47. In doing so Don help guide the association through the corporate channels at BHT and allowed President Rhodes to conduct business face to face with execs all the way up to the president of BHT.
“Don always put a good word in for B47HA with the execs at BHT and it was a sad day when he told us that he was leaving BHT. He remains in our thoughts and prayers and we wish he and his family great success in the years to come. He will go down in our ledger as a man with integrity that provided a great leadership for me to follow.”….Joey
