The NBAA/Corporate Angel Network (CAN) auction is heating up, with some tantalizing items on which to bid. The auction, held tonight at the NBAA/CAN Evening with Angels at the Peabody Hotel here in Orlando, benefits CAN’s airlift of cancer patients nationwide.

This year bidders can vie for some diverse items, including a Honeywell Bendix/King KMA audio panel; one year of waived handling fees from Signature Flight Support; Aircell’s ATG 5000 high-speed Internet system; and air travel to Dubai, UAE, and business aviation training at Emirates-CAE’s flight training facility. There’s even 1,000 gallons of Phillips 66 jet fuel, redeemable at more than 860 FBOs in the U.S., as well as initial flight training in the King Air 90, 100 or 200 at SimCom. The complete list of auction items is at www.nbaa.org/events/amc/2012/soiree/auctions/#live. Every dollar raised by the auction benefits the Corporate Angel Network.
