Test Your Piloting Skills, Creativity With Lightspeed's Wild Blue Doodle Contest

Pilots Invited To 'Draw' Pictures In The Sky Using CloudAhoy

It's been a little stressful here in Florida where much of Aero-News is based, so we thought we'd put something a bit less serious in today's edition.

Lightspeed Aviation, a leading manufacturer of premium ANR headsets, has announced the details of a contest that will appeal to skilled pilots with an artistic bent: the Wild Blue Doodle. Using the CloudAhoy flight tracking and debriefing platform, aviators can create visual representations of their flight paths to "draw" pictures in the sky. Winners will be chosen through a 2-stage process: a panel of judges will select the top 10 entries based on a combination of artistry and safety and, starting on October 4, the final winners will be selected by public voting. First place wins a Lightspeed Zulu 3 headset, second place a Lightspeed Gann leather flight bag, and third place a Lightspeed Markham leather flight bag. All entries that reach the public voting phase will receive an annual standard subscription to CloudAhoy.

"Each time we partner with CloudAhoy, the results are more creative and more exciting," said Ed Hansen, Director of Marketing for Lightspeed. "The Wild Blue Doodle will test both piloting skills and the pilot's creativity. More importantly, it will promote the fun of flying and get pilots in the air."

Details on how to compete, as well as the entries and the contender rankings, can be seen at LightspeedAviation.com/Doodle. Because the CloudAhoy software is used to create the entries and track voting, you must be a CloudAhoy subscriber to enter the contest and to participate in the public voting. However, free trial subscriptions are available.
