Lynden Chairman Receives Award

Lynden Chairman Jim Jansen has been honored by the Alaska Aviation Museum with a Lifetime Achievement Award and inducted into its Hall of Fame, which honors pilots and entrepreneurs who have made an impact on Alaska’s aviation history.

“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,” said Board Member and Past President Bill Odom.

Jansen, who received his pilot’s license in 1965, has been flying for more than 50 years in several aircraft, including the Stinson 108-3, Cessna 185, Beech Baron, Turbo Commander and King Air in Alaska. The creation of Lynden Air Cargo in 1995 combined his love of aviation with his vision of a multi-mode transportation company in Alaska.
