Zulu PFX was one of only four products to earn the award and is in good company, the others being: the TBM 900 turboprop, the Embraer Legacy 500 jet, and Able Flight, a charitable organization.

  2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree

Lightspeed Aviation has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for our Zulu PFX ANR aviation headset. Products entered into this prestigious program are judged by an expert panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the consumer electronics trade media assembled to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories. Zulu PFX won in the In-Vehicle Accessories/Control/Navigation category.


The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International Consumer Electronics Show and an organization that has been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.

Comfort. Quiet. Clarity.

Lightspeed Rated Best in Professional Pilot Headset Preference Survey


Lightspeed Scores Another Win with Aviation Consumer

Lightspeed Aviation ranked #1 in the 2012 Professional Pilot Headset Preference Survey. This survey, conducted once a year by Professional Pilot magazine, takes the pulse of a community of aviators that places especially rigorous and exacting demands on headsets.


The survey results, based on over 1,600 responses from operators randomly selected from Professional Pilot's subscribers, focused on six key areas: clarity, comfort, technical advancement, durability, product support, and value for the price. Lightspeed was ranked best overall with high marks in all categories, especially in comfort and value. Detailed results are available in the December 2012 issue of Professional Pilot.


Lightspeed Aviation earned another top honor from a national aviation publication in 2012. Aviation Consumer magazine assembled a diverse group of active pilots, aircraft mechanics, and backseat passengers for a real-world test of budget-friendly ANR headsets and they unanimously voted Lightspeed Sierra the "hands-down favorite."


Testers were given headsets from six manufacturers, sent up in a plane, and asked to review the products based on attributes such as comfort, styling and audio performance. Their responses convinced the editors of Aviation Consumer to name Lightspeed the "solid winner." You can read the entire article, "ANR on a Budget," in the December 2012 issue of Aviation Consumer.


We are deeply honored to have earned this recognition. Our profound appreciation goes out to those pilots, mechanics, and passengers who rated us so highly and to our dealers and Lightspeed users whose loyalty and respect we will continue to earn through our devotion to innovation and outstanding customer service. Thank you!
