Corporate Angel Network, the national public charity that arranges free flights to treatment for cancer patients by using empty seats on business aircraft, was recently presented a $25,000 check from The Wings Club.
Dave Barger, president of The Wings Club, said the donation recognizes the superb job Corporate Angel does in softening the cares and pressures of cancer patients. The charity has arranged more than 32,000 free flights to treatment aboard business and fractional aircraft.
“Corporate Angel Network has carried patients to treatment centers from most of the 50 states. They are sensitive to the particular medical needs of these travelers and offer an efficient, reliable service. This can ease the hardship, and often even the worries, of those who are battling cancer,” Barger said.
In recognition of The Wings Club’s longtime support of Corporate Angel Network efforts, the organization will arrange to have “Wings Club Appreciation Plaques” placed at the 10 FBOs that see the most Corporate Angel patients: Tulsair (Beechcraft), Tulsa, Okla.; Wilson-Air Center, Houston; Avitat, White Plains, N.Y.; Signature Flight Support, Morristown, N.J.; Signature Flight Support, Newark, N.J.; Signature Flight Support, Teterboro, N..J; Signature Flight Support, White Plains, N.Y.; Lane Aviation, Columbus, Ohio; Atlantic Aviation, Teterboro, N.J., and First Aviation, Teterboro, N.J.
