Civil Air Patrol receives a second $10,000 grant from Lightspeed Aviation Foundation

MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. – For the second straight year, Civil Air Patrol is among the nation’s best aviation charitable organizations and the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation’s gift and grant program.

Lightspeed Aviation President Allan Schrader made the contribution to Civil Air Patrol this morning at the Pilots Choice Awards at the AOPA Aviation Summit in Hartford, Conn.

Col. Christopher J. Hayden, commander of Civil Air Patrol’s Northeast Region, accepted the grant, which recognizes CAP as one of the top five aviation charitable organizations in America in 2011. Twenty aviation charities were nominated as potential grant recipients, but only the top five organizations – as chosen by pilots and other aviation enthusiasts from across the country – earned the foundation’s grants.
