Volunteer Flyers Needed for PALS

Looking for a good way to spend your time? Consider donating your time flying for a wonderful cause. Patient AirLift Services arranges free air transportation to individuals requiring medical care and for other humanitarian purposes based on need. The network of volunteer pilots provides this free service to individuals with limited financial resources, using their own or rented aircraft. Generally the individuals who need these services have or are receiving diagnosis, treatment or follow-up for various types of acute or chronic illnesses or conditions, and because of financial hardship, cannot use public commercial or private charter transportation.

Between them, PALS’ founders have personally flown thousands of missions as pilots-in-command. As experienced volunteer flyers, they donate their time, airplanes and all expenses without compensation, and their only sources of income for operation costs are private donations and grants.

PALS needs pilots with P-I-C qualifications to join up to help transport. If you’re looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of people, you’ll find it every time you complete a mission through volunteer flying with PALS. Volunteers are also needed to contact health care professionals and institutions in their local area so that the word spreads about its valuable and cost-free service.

On Friday, November 19, 2010 from 7PM – 11PM Patient Airlift Services will hold its first-ever fundraiser event. It will be held at the Tamarack Country Club in Greenwich, CT. It will be a gala evening with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music, dancing and a silent auction. Tickets are being sold in advance. Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information please call Eileen Minogue at (516) 300-1660 or (888) 818-1231 option 2.

To learn how as a pilot you can be of service, contact Joe Howley, President, Chairman of the Board of Patient Airlift Services. To learn more about Joe and the work of the organization, visit www.palservices.org or contact him at (203) 312-3055.
