The Corporate Angel Network recognized Corning for having flown a record number of flights carrying cancer patients to treatment centers aboard its Fairchild Dornier 328JET corporate shuttles. Corning, of Horseheads, N.Y., has flown more than 1,500 CAN missions since joining the organization in 1983. “Corning’s people go the extra mile for our patients,” said CAN executive director Thomas Robertazzi. “They allow our patients to schedule trips up to six weeks in advance and have never had to cancel a flight.” White Plains, N.Y.-based CAN since 1981 has arranged nearly 14,000 regularly scheduled business aircraft flights by some 500 member corporations to carry cancer patients to treatment facilities.
