Lindbergh Foundation Reveals First Aviation Green Alliance Founder

Alliance Created To Help Address Aviation Environmental Issues

The Lindbergh Foundation announced Monday that Hawker Beechcraft Corporation has become its first Aviation Green Alliance founding member.

The Lindbergh Foundation launched the Aviation Green Alliance on February 3, to support those who are committed to proactively addressing aviation and environmental challenges, including emissions, noise, efficiency and other environmental concerns. "Having just launched the Aviation Green Alliance program a few weeks ago, we are thrilled to already have a major corporation such as Hawker Beechcraft step up and support this program," said Foundation Chairman, President and CEO Larry Williams. "It's exciting that we have a number of other OEMs and groups at various stages of the commitment process."

"Founder membership in the Aviation Green Alliance comes with some added benefits that we found to be particularly valuable," said Bill Plucker, Advanced Design Program Manager, at Hawker Beechcraft Corp. "We believe being part of the Lindbergh Foundation's Advisory 'Spirit' Committee will provide us with a greater opportunity to advance our own aviation-environmental initiatives with the support of the Lindbergh Foundation and the influence of the members of the Aviation Green Alliance."

The Aviation Green Alliance was established to create multiple platforms for members to share strategies, findings, progress, and ideas related to aviation's environmental challenges.  "With the Lindbergh Foundation's mission and history deeply rooted in aviation, we felt it was the Foundation's responsibility to step forward and lead a grassroots rally to support tangible, measurable, and sustainable environmental progress by the aviation industry," said Williams. "We hope other like-minded individuals and companies, like Hawker Beechcraft, will come forward and help us lead the way."
