Corporate Angel Network, the 32-year-old organization that arranges free flights to treatment for cancer patients in the empty seats of corporate aircraft, has transported its 42,000th patient. The milestone flight, which was operated by Ball, carried one-year-old cancer patient Alexander Hopper home to the Denver area after he received treatment for Retinoblastoma at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City. “We are proud to partner with CAN and the good work that they do and, while as a pilot I love every flight I make, the CAN flights…are always the ones I remember most,” said Ball director of aviation and chief pilot Barry Stidham.
