Alliance Created To Help Address Aviation Environmental
The Lindbergh Foundation announced Monday that Hawker Beechcraft
Corporation has become its first Aviation Green Alliance founding
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."
