Longines Longines Lindbergh Award
Created by Longines to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the transatlantic solo flight without a stopover completed by Charles Lindbergh, this prize will be awarded for the first time in New York on May 21, 2018.
As official timer for The World Air Sports Federation, Longines timed the first transatlantic solo flight without a stopover completed in 1927 by the American pilot Charles A. Lindbergh. The "Spirit of St. Louis" left New York on May 21 and landed the next day at Le Bourget Airport in Paris after a flight of 33:30. To celebrate this achievement, Longines created the Lindbergh Award which will be awarded each year to an adventurer or pioneer who has achieved a feat in his field.
Nod to the anniversary of the arrival of the aviator in Paris, this award will be presented for the first time in New York on May 21, 2018. Like the prize awarded by Raymond Orteig to Charles Lindbergh on June 16, 1927, the Longines Lindbergh amounts to $25,000.
