StandardAero and Corporate Angel Network (CAN) announced that CAN will receive a donation of more than $1,500 in conjunction with the second annual Business Aviation Motorcycle Charity Ride, which will take place after the closing of the current NBAA Convention.

“The great service CAN provides to the families and individuals who deal with the daily battle against [cancer] is incredibly important,” said Scott Taylor, Standard Aero's senior vice president of business aviation (and an avid motorcycler who owns a Harley-Davidson motorcycle). "It is our pleasure to help coordinate a contribution."

Corporate Angel Network (Booth No. 7331), which is based in White Plains, N.Y., arranges free flights to treatment for cancer patients, using empty seats on corporate flights.

StandardAero (Booth No. 7601), which is based in Tempe, Ariz., specializes in engine maintenance, repair and overhaul, major modifications and aircraft refurbishment.
