CASPER, Wyo. — For nearly half a century, Marvin Robinson has worked on airplanes at the Casper-Natrona County International Airport. On Saturday, he will be recognized for his years of service with one of the most prestigious honors the Federal Aviation Administration can bestow: the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic Award.

Robinson will receive the award at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15 on the observation deck in the airport’s terminal. According to the FAA, Robinson is only the eighth Wyoming resident to receive the award, and of those he is the only one who is a Wyoming native.

To be eligible for the award, mechanics must have at least 50 years of civil and military maintenance experience.
