Lightspeed Aviation picks new weekly winner of the $500 Burger Getaway

3rd_week_winner_300px_0.jpgLightspeed Aviation announces that Reade Genzlinger of Alpine, Wyoming is the latest weekly winner of their $500 Burger Getaway sweepstakes. The Getaway consists of a series of weekly drawings for a $500 package that includes gift cards for av gas, rental car, dining, and lodging. Any eligible customer registering a new Lightspeed or Sierra headset is automatically entered.

“One of the most exciting aspects of this promotion has been learning the background of our winners,” said Teresa De Mers, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Support for Lightspeed. “Their experiences, accomplishments, and volunteer activities reaffirm what we already knew about pilots and it’s what drives us to create better and better products.”

Reade sits on the board of directors of the Recreational Aviation Foundation and, as you would expect, is an experienced backcountry pilot (not to mention an accomplished aerobatic pilot). He owns a Yak 52 tail dragger, a Husky A-1B, and a Cessna T210R that he uses for his twice-yearly migration between his homes in Wyoming and Pennsylvania. Reade flies Zulu’s in all his planes. He is looking forward to using his Getaway prize on his annual trip back to Wyoming in May.

“Reade is a typical Lightspeed customer in that he is exceptional,” said De Mers. “His passion for aviation is obvious and his volunteer work with the RAF opens new, exciting destinations for pilots everywhere.”

The $500 Burger Getaway weekly drawings run through January 7, 2014. For more information, visit
