Lindbergh Foundation Day at SUN 'n FUN

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (March 23, 2011) The second-annual Lindbergh Foundation Day takes place on Thursday, March 31 from 9 a.m - 2 p.m. This year, the Foundation is putting together an outstanding line-up of aviation industry speakers who will offer their unique perspectives on aviation-related topics, as well as new and existing technology and the impact they may have on our environment. All the forums will be held in the multipurpose room at the Central Florida Aerospace Academy on the SUN 'n FUN campus.

"Last month, the Lindbergh Foundation launched the Aviation Green Alliance to support aviation-related companies and individuals who are committed to proactively addressing aviation and environmental challenges," said Foundation Chairman, President and CEO Larry Williams. "One of the objectives of this program is to offer informational programs that are focused on the industry's progress in addressing aviation's environmental footprint. Lindbergh Foundation Day at SUN 'n FUN is the perfect venue for us to present our first in a series of forums being planned at key aviation venues throughout the year. We thank SUN 'n FUN for their support of our efforts."
