Alliance Fosters Sharing Of Advancements In Aviation Among Its Members
BRS Aerospace has joined the Aviation Green Alliance as a Founding Member, according to a news release Friday from the Lindbergh Foundation.
"We are thrilled that BRS Aerospace is joining our elite group of Aviation Green Alliance Founding Members," said Lindbergh Foundation Executive Director Yolanka Wulff. "BRS provides a solution to a problem unique and inherent to aviation, using parachutes to save lives. The support of BRS, and its fellow Founding Members, demonstrates the importance of Aviation Green Alliance as a leader in the future of aviation. I am confident that both Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh would be enormously proud to have such a prestigious organization as a supporter - especially one which has done so much for aviation and has had such an impact on saving lives."
In recent years, the aviation industry - including manufacturing, corporate operators and individuals - have come under intense pressure to address aviation emissions, noise, efficiency and other environmental concerns. The Lindbergh Foundation launched the Aviation Green Alliance in 2011 to support and encourage those who are committed to proactively addressing aviation's environmental challenges.
"It is a privilege and an honor for BRS Aerospace to be involved and supporting such a prestigious organization as the Lindbergh Foundation and its Aviation Green Alliance program. It is our responsibility as business leaders to leave a better world for future generations. We at BRS strongly believe in preserving and improving the quality of life," said Enrique Dillon, Board Chairman.
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, the Foundation has taken on the responsibility to step forward and lead a grassroots rally to support tangible, measurable, and sustainable environmental progress by the aviation industry. We hope other like-minded individuals and companies will join our Founding Members - Bombardier Aerospace, Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft, Jeppesen, FedEx, Fantasy of Flight, Sikorsky Innovations, and now BRS Aerospace - to help Lindbergh Foundation's Aviation Green Alliance lead the way.
