Giving back is one key principle that NBAA and so many NBAA members and member companies live by. Because of this, Corporate Angel Network (CAN) executive director Dick Koenig is a happy man this week. Yesterday at the Phillips 66 exhibit (Booth 4200), Koenig had the opportunity to both give and receive.
Koenig and CAN chairman Randy Greene (also president and CEO of Safe Flight), along with award sponsors from Phillips 66, Safe Flight and Aviation Week/Business & Commercial Aviation, presented representatives from the Williams Companies and Cummins flight departments with an etched crystal case honoring them for flying the most CAN flights in the past year. Flight departments Spectra and Devon were also honored.
CAN flights transport cancer patients pro bono on corporate flights to where critical medical treatments are available in distant cities.
At the same ceremony Koenig and Greene accepted a $21,000 check to support CAN. NBAA attendees can support CAN, too, by attending the CAN/NBAA Soirée tonight. The event promises more wonderful surprises from CAN. More information and tickets are available from CAN at its NBAA exhibit (Booth 4935).
