The Lightspeed Aviation Foundation will reveal the names of 20 charities — selected from hundreds of nominees — that will benefit from grants to be awarded this year. The announcement will be made at 11 a.m. March 28 at the Sun ’n Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Florida.
The foundation is in its third year of partnering with the aviation community to identify and support worthy aviation causes. All aviation enthusiasts will be invited to vote in the Pilot’s Choice Awards online at LightspeedAviationFoundation.org. The top five charities, as chosen by the aviation community, will each receive a check for no less than $10,000.
Lightspeed Aviation customers will also have a special opportunity to participate when they register their Lightspeed headsets and vote in the Customer Choice Awards. The top five customer choice vote recipients will each receive award gifts of $5,000 each. Every finalist will receive a grant of no less than $1,000.
Allan Schrader, Lightspeed Aviation president says, “This foundation has the values of our company at its core. It is unique in that it does not ask for or accept financial gifts, so I’m very pleased that last year we were able to award more than $100,000 in grants based purely upon the direction we received from the aviation community. We’re happy to continue enabling pilots everywhere, as well as our own customers, to participate with us in making a significant contribution to the future of aviation.
Since 1996, Lightspeed Aviation has manufactured aviation headsets for the professional and general aviation pilot, includig its signature headset Zulu.2.
