Cape May Resident Receives Aviation Award

By Press Release

Larry R. Otter, a former project manager at the FAA’s Research & Development Flight Program, was recently honored as a recipient of the prestigious Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award.
The Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award is awarded to recipients who have worked for 50 years in an aviation maintenance career. The award is named in honor of Charles Taylor, the first aviation mechanic in powered flight.
Otter, a Vietnam veteran, began his 50-year career in aviation by serving in the U.S. Airforce, from 1968-1972. He was stationed at the Phan Rang Air Base, in Vietnam.
In 1976, Otter graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, in Daytona Beach, Fla., earning a bachelor’s degree in Aviation Maintenance Management. That same year, he moved back to his hometown of Cape May and landed his first job post-graduation at Southern Jersey Airways, Inc., as lead mechanic and delegated inspector. Otter would work his way up to manager of Quality Control and chief inspector, eventually supervising a team of aircraft inspectors and technicians.
In June 1990, Otter began working at Cape Air Services, Inc., as general manager and chief inspector, managing a flight school maintenance program, annual aircraft inspections and an FBO station, which includes fueling, hangaring, tie-down and parking, aircraft rental and maintenance.
