There are several volunteer organizations led by business aviation professionals, seeking to provide relief to those suffering from natural disasters, aid in life-flight services, and more. Learn about these programs, as outlined by NoPlaneNoGain.org, below.
Business aviation is often on the front line in lending a hand to citizens and communities in times of crisis. Through volunteer organizations like Angel Flight, Air Care Alliance, and Corporate Aircraft Responding in Emergencies, companies and pilots regularly provide life-saving services to people in hard-to-reach communities around the globe.
These missions include:
- Disaster relief – shipping food, medicine and clothing to people in need
- Life-flight service – transporting terminally-ill patients for life-saving medical procedures
- Emergency organ, blood and serum transfers
- Volunteer transportation for U.S. Military Soldiers, Red Cross, and National Guard units
