This 9/11, Give Back to Those in Need

Thirteen years ago, the tragedy of September 11, 2001, took the lives of nearly 3,000 people and caused a wave of consequences throughout our nation and the world. Now, we honor September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, a nationwide movement of charitable service in remembrance of the 9/11 victims, the survivors, and their families. On the anniversary of the terrorist attacks, Americans unite in service the same way that so many came together to help on that tragic day.

Jet owners and pilots who want to commemorate the day through service have several unique options for doing so. Here’s a look at three ways you can put your jet into service for a worthwhile cause.

Flying for Air Charity Network

Many people around the world lack convenient access to quality medical care, medicines, and treatment. Often, those who have health problems and live in remote areas also lack the funds to travel to places where they can receive the needed treatment. To help address these problems, nonprofit organization Air Charity Network facilitates access to health care for needy people by coordinating free air transportation on private aircraft.

Through Air Charity Network, jet owners and volunteer pilots fly people with health problems long distances to and from the medical facilities where they can receive the treatment they need. For example, Air Charity Network carries cancer patients for chemotherapy, people with kidney problems to dialysis or surgical transplants, and children to and from hospitals to receive treatment for life-threatening illnesses.

Delivering hope with Sky Hope Network

Sky Hope Network‘s mission is to engage the dynamic business aviation network to solve critical problems in emergency and urgent situations. For disaster relief, the organization coordinates bizav flights to deliver supplies, volunteers, and medical teams and also coordinates rescues of the critically injured.

Sky Hope Network also synchronizes flight requests for urgent situations where some lead time is available — for example, an urgent flight request for a young father battling cancer who needs a stem cell treatment in Panama City while he lives in Atlanta.

Lending your jet to Angel Flight West

The all-volunteer organization Angel Flight West arranges free non-emergency air travel for those who have serious medical conditions and other critical needs. This organization relies on the donation of aircraft, pilot skills, time, and flying costs to help individuals and families in need get the help that would otherwise be inaccessible to them. You can lend your jet or an empty return flight to Angel Flight West and help someone in need.

You can find more ways to use your private jet to give back to the community in this post. While honoring this year’s National Day of Service and Remembrance, consider using your private jet to assist Americans and others in need across the world and change the story September 11 left behind.
