  NOTE: The Zulu PFX product release has been delayed. Allan Schrader, President of Lightspeed Aviation, explains:  
    "From the start, our goal with Zulu PFX has been to create not just the world's best aviation headset, but an entirely new category of quiet. We are well on our way to reaching that goal but, as is often the case, the last few yards are proving to be the most challenging. As it turns out, this is especially true when deploying technologies in ways never attempted before. We are not going to rush this... but rather will take the time to make this the most amazing headset you've ever used. While a difficult task for sure, we have a great track record of product innovations stretching back over 15 years. I'm confident we will complete this with exceptional results and a perfected Zulu PFX will be available in the spring."    
  Pre-order now for shipments beginning in spring 2014.
