Lindbergh Foundation Named as Beneficiary of Lightspeed Aviation Foundation

Lightspeed Aviation Foundation?۪s Grants??Top $100,000 for 2010

Lake Oswego, OR (Jan. 26, 2011) ???Twenty aviation-related charities are the beneficiaries of over $100,000 in grants awarded by the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation for 2010.

In April 2010, the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation submitted twenty award finalists to the aviation community. Pilots then selected their favorites among these charities by voting online or designating a portion of new Lightspeed Aviation headset purchases,

In November, $50,000 was shared at the AOPA Summit Pilot Choice Awards between the five finalists with the highest number of online votes. This week, additional gifting in excess of $50,000 was distributed among all twenty charities based on the amount designated by new Lightspeed Aviation customers at the time they registered their product.

???What?۪s particularly unique about the foundation is that we do not ask or accept financial gifts to fund the foundation,?۝ according to Allan Schrader, Founder and President of Lightspeed Aviation. ???Perhaps best of all, it is the pilots who choose where the money goes.?۝
