Avplan Trip Support, the flight-planning company owned by Avfuel Corp., recently chose Jeffrey Reid, president of Houston-based Wing Aviation, as the winner of a drawing for 1 million AVTRIP points — the equivalent of a $10,000 U.S. Savings Bond — for using Avplan to plan an international trip. Reid then donated the AVTRIP award to Operation Grateful Nation, a nonprofit group whose mission it to build hope and sustainable futures for severely disabled veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan through career opportunities, education and assistance in life planning.
“My hope is that our donation will encourage others to help these kids who have done so much for our country,” he said.
The million-point-promotion served as the kick-off to the announcement that Avfuel would begin awarding AVTRIP rewards points for flight planning services through Avplan. Points also are available on fuel purchases at over 550 Avfuel-branded FBOs worldwide, many of which run bonus point promotions throughout the year. In addition, points are available through newsletters, social media and website promotions, according to company officials.
