Lynden Chairman Jim Jansen Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Jun 5, 2019 | News, Transportation

The Alaska Aviation Museum presented Lynden Chairman Jim Jansen with a Lifetime Achievement Award recently and inducted him into its Hall of Fame. The annual Hall of Fame event celebrates pilots and entrepreneurs who have shaped Alaska’s aviation history.

Jim earned his pilot’s license in 1965. In 1967, he was driving a truck at the remote Kennecott mine and also flying people and supplies from Anchorage to the mine in a Piper Comanche. Over the past fifty years, he has flown various aircraft including the Stinson 108-3, Cessna 185, Beech Baron, Turbo Commander and King Air in Alaska. He is also Type Rated in the Lockheed Hercules. A 16,500-hour ATP rated pilot, Jim has flown his Cessna 185 for forty-one years and the Lynden King Air for the past twenty-two years. The creation of Lynden Air Cargo in 1995 combined Jim’s love of aviation with his vision of a multi-mode transportation company in Alaska.

“The Alaska Aviation Museum greatly appreciates the tremendous contributions Jim Jansen has made to Alaska’s aviation, transportation and infrastructure development and welcomes him into the Hall of Fame,” says Board Member and Past President Bill Odom.

Imagine hosting an event with an array of prospective clients in attendance, and the first slide of your presentation reads: “Here Is Exactly How Not to Hire Us.” It seems counterintuitive, but this is precisely what ARM Creative has done with its educational event series: SOTI.
