Angel Flight Needs Your Vote

Screen Shot 2013-10-29 at 7.53.27 PMAngel Flight West strongly believes that travel for medical and other compelling needs should not be inaccessible because of financial, medical or geographical limitations. Arranging free air transportation on private aircraft is how we act on this belief, but that action takes a significant amount of financial resources. Angel Flight West’s financial support consists of generous gifts from many of our members, our annual golf tournament, and support from a wide array of foundations.

The Lightspeed Aviation Foundation is an organization established out of the commitment and passion of the Lightspeed Aviation Corporation to serve the aviation community. The foundation has selected 15 nominees as foundation finalists, and it is now up to a vote to see which organizations will win a Pilot’s Choice Award grant. The top five finalists receive $10,000 and we are currently in 3rd place! VOTING ENDS ON NOVEMBER 1. In order to keep our spot in the top five, we need your vote!

Vote for Angel Flight West to win $10,000!

It’s Free. It’s Fast.

Please spread the word!
