Your jet collects dust in hangar? Donate some time to charity!

There's always someone in desperate need of getting from point A to point B. For some of them it's vital - organs recipients, who have waited on the list for too long and now have to get to a hospital really quick , etc. So join the ranks and one of the nonprofit organizations and let your strong hands give support and wings to people too poor to afford a luxury of private jet.

Angel Flight America
Angel Flight America is a national non-profit network of private pilots who provide free air transportation for people in need seeking access to specialized health care facilities or distant destinations. They also provide free flights in the event of a national crisis or whenever there is a compelling human need. Angel Flight America has a volunteer corps of over 5,000 private pilots from all 50 states and provides over 20,000 flights for children and adults each year.

Corporate Angel Network
Corporate Angel Network is a charitable organization that arranges free flights for cancer patients to treatment centers, using the empty seats on corporate aircraft flying on routine business. Based in White Plains, N.Y., the 23-year-old service, which arranges 1,200 flights a year, is open to all cancer patients, bone marrow donors, and bone marrow recipients who are not in need of medical support while traveling. Patients may travel as often as necessary, and eligibility is not based on financial need.
