Review for LightHawk, Telluride, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a volunteer pilot for Lighthawk. I have been an environmental activist all of my adult life, and have worked with many of the better-known (and several not-so-well-known) organizations. Lighthawk has what I consider to be a brilliant approach (pardon the pun) which allows it to maximize the inclusion of volunteers from an incredibly broad range of the political/environmental spectrum. The volunteers are typically donating very high-value items such as aircraft use, fuel, and pilot time. This focus on having the high-cost items donated helps maximize the amount of work that the organization can accomplish with a given amount of funds. Lighthawk seems to be very professionally and efficiently run, making good use of modern technology and organizational practices. The volunteer experience is excellent, and from what I have seen, the same is true for the partners who benefit from Lighthawk's services.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Not sure what this field is meant for. I made a few guesses below: Location? North and Central America Type or Work? Environmentalism

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way so that fuel costs could be donated by third parties, so that the pilots who donate their time and aircraft could afford to donate more flights to the organization.

Role:  Volunteer & Flew airplanes for photographers, scientists, politicians, etc.
