L3 Technologies and Cubic Corporation latest to commit to Learning Center enhancement and expansion of aviation education programs
(DAYTON, Ohio – March 21, 2017) The National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) announced this morning that two leading defense technology companies, L3 Technologies and Cubic Corporation, have each contributed $50,000 in support of the organization’s Come With Us Campaign. The non-profit NAHF, founded in 1962 and chartered by U.S. Congress, serves to honor America’s outstanding air and space pioneers. Among the 233 men and women it has inducted thus far are the Wright Brothers, Bessie Coleman, Charles Lindbergh, and Neil Armstrong. Headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, it operates an over 17,000-square-foot Learning Center with free parking and admission to the public, adjacent to the National Museum of the United States Air Force.
The $5 million Come With Us Campaign is the centerpiece of a multi-year effort by the NAHF to fund enhancements to its Learning Center and interactive exhibits, expand education programming, and build on its endowment.
With corporate headquarters in New York City and offices worldwide, L3 Technologies is a leading provider of a broad range of communication and electronic systems and products used on military, homeland security and commercial platforms. L3 is also a prime contractor in aerospace systems, security and detection systems, and pilot training.
San Diego-based Cubic Corporation is the parent company of three major businesses that employ over 8,000 in over 60 countries. The array of services provided to its government and commercial customers around the globe include secure communications and networking, surveillance and reconnaissance, and combat training systems, among others.
“We are grateful to each of these innovative industry-leaders for their investment in the National Aviation Hall of Fame as we evolve to better serve our hundreds of thousands of annual visitors,” said NAHF Executive Director Amy Spowart. “The generous campaign gifts from both L3 Technologies and Cubic are a clear and welcomed commitment to the Hall of Fame’s mission of ‘Honoring Aerospace Legends to Inspire Future Leaders’.”
