Corporate Angel Network (CAN)–which flies cancer patients and their families to treatment using donated space on business jets–will receive a $21,000 donation here at the show. The money represents proceeds from an advertising campaign that recognizes corporate flight departments for their participation in the program. Safe Flight Instrument, ConocoPhillips and Business & Commercial Aviation magazine cosponsor the annual campaign, which began in 2001. CAN participants being honored this year are Nestle Purina PetCare, ParkerHannifin, ITT and Cigna. The $21,000 check will be presented to CAN executive director Peter Fleiss at 4 p.m. on Monday, October 11, at ConocoPhillips Booth (No. C10620).
