Fuel Discount For Volunteer Pilots
Responding to the high price of aviation fuel, Angel Flight West (AFW), the country’s largest volunteer pilot organization providing free nonemergency air transportation for health care issues, is implementing a discount program to help pilots pay for fuel. “The increased costs of flying, along with the downturn in the economy, have impacted the number of pilots who can afford to fly missions. Developing this fuel discount program will continue our efforts to provide essential human services,” says AFW Executive Director Alan M. Dias.
