NAMPA, ID — Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is one of five aviation charities to receive a $10,000 grant from the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation. Lightspeed announced the winners today at the AOPA Aviation Summit in Hartford, Connecticut.
This is the second year that MAF has received a Lightspeed grant. The recipients were selected by pilots from around the world who cast their votes on the foundation’s website.
“We are so grateful for the flight community’s vote of confidence in MAF,” said John Boyd, president and CEO. “We appreciate the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation and its commitment to doing good through aviation.”
Lightspeed cited MAF’s work to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those in isolated areas of the world, as well as the ministry’s partnership and service to Christian organizations and other agencies.
The foundation was established in 2010 by Lightspeed Aviation Corporation to promote the pilot community and serve others for the betterment of the world. The company manufactures aviation headsets. More information is available at www.lightspeedaviationfoundation.org.
