The Lyons Aviation Foundation is proud to present our scholarship recipients. The Lyons family has been linked to aviation in one form or another for over 65 years. This foundation is born out of our sense to give back. It’s created through the loving and caring nature instilled in our family by our parents. It’s created to help give opportunity to those that might not otherwise have the means to pursue aviation as a career path. This foundation is about our family story and its ties to aviation, military service, and one another. As a family we have been blessed, and truly believe in helping and giving to others. The Lyons Aviation Foundation’s hope is to inspire, assistant, and to provide opportunity. Your donations are appreciated to help achieve these goals.
