Phillips 66 Aviation (Booth No. 4560) and NBAA jointly presented a check to the Corporate Angel Network (CAN) for $21,000 to support the organization’s efforts providing free flights on business aircraft for cancer patients en route to and from treatment around the U.S. More than 40,000 cancer patients have had transportation arranged by CAN since 1981. The $21,000 donation, awarded on the first day of NBAA’12, is the amount generated by the Corporate Angel Award program, which recognizes flight departments that donate seats on business aircraft for cancer patients traveling for treatment. The award sponsors are Phillips 66 Aviation, SafeFlight Instrument and McGraw Hill. This year’s Corporate Angel Award recipients are the corporate flight departments for Colleen, Ball, B-D and General Mills.
