J. Lynn Helms, Who Led the F.A.A., Dies at 86

Tue, Dec 13, 2011
Jonee Lynn Helms — he never used his first name — was born on March 1, 1925, in De Queen, Ark., near the Oklahoma border, where his father, Benjamin Franklin Helms, was a railroad worker, and his mother, Mamie Johnson, was a teacher. He attended the University of Oklahoma. Though he never graduated, he began his aviation career at Oklahoma, joining the Navy aviation cadet training program. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Marines. He was later a Navy test pilot and awarded both the Marine Corps Air Medal and the United States Air Force Air Medal with Oak-Leaf Cluster for Combat and Exceptional Service during the Korean War. In addition to his daughter Carole, Mr. Helms is survived by his wife, a former Miss Colorado, Lorraine Bisgard Helms, whom he married in 1947; a brother, Robert; another daughter, Loralyn Helms; a son, Zackary , and three grandchildren. A son, Jon L. Helms II, died in 1987. At the F.A.A., Mr. Helms headed the United States delegation to the United Nations emergency session after the Soviet Union shot down a South Korean airliner with 269 people aboard in 1983. He also oversaw the development of the 1982 National Airspace System Plan, a 20-year scheme to revamp the air traffic control system in anticipation of an increase in air travel as the century came to an end. By 1991, however, the plan was no longer viable, though many of its projects were incorporated in a more comprehensive blueprint for the future of the agency as a whole. Mr. Helms left the F.A.A. in January 1984 under a cloud after The Wall Street Journal had examined his private business practices and concluded that he and a partner had engaged in shady ethical and possibly illegal behavior. They were later charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission with diverting $1.2 million from an issue of tax-exempt municipal bonds to their personal use. Mr. Helms signed a consent order that settled the case, though he did not have to repay any money. (New York Times)
