2012 Flying Editors' Choice Awards
Corporate Angel Network
We continue our new tradition at Flying of awarding an Editors’ Choice Award to an organization, not for a great product but for a program that does good for the aviation community and beyond. This year we recognize Corporate Angel Network, the not-for-profit organization that connects business jet operators with cancer patients in need of a lift to get treatment. Every year CAN coordinates more than 3,000 of these charitable flights, allowing ambulatory patients to get to a treatment center faster and with less physical distress and financial burden than would otherwise be possible. Since its founding more than three decades ago, CAN has coordinated more than 35,000 flights. Flying has been a longtime supporter of CAN. We encourage you to be too.
