Lindbergh Foundation Supports Electric Flight

At last week's Sun 'n Fun event, Erik Lindbergh promoted his foundation's electric aircraft prize. The aim of the award is to promote electric aircraft technology. This will be the first time for the grant, which will be announced and presented at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh July 26 - Aug. 1. Awards will go in four categories: best aircraft, best component (ie: battery), best sub-system and a public choice award decided by vote. Visit for more information.
