The Corporate Angel Network (CAN) on January 24 arranged its 20,000th flight aboard a corporate aircraft for a cancer patient. The provider was International Paper with its Falcon 900EX, and the patient was 79-year-old Walter Latimer, a Florida resident who was returning home from Westchester County Airport, White Plains, N.Y., after emergency surgery in New York City. Founded in 1981 in White Plains, CAN partners with corporations to arrange free flights for cancer patients to and from treatment centers using empty seats on corporate aircraft flying on routine business.
