Podcast: The Future of Humanitarian Flight

Aug. 10, 2020

COVID-19 presents many challenges to organizations that arrange humanitarian travel onboard business aircraft and the pilots who fly those missions, and its effects likely will be felt long after the pandemic finally eases. Nevertheless, the industry continues to adapt to provide services to those in need. “Aviation as a whole has been an important tool during crises over many, many decades,” said Gina Russo, executive director for the Corporate Angel Network. “Now during this pandemic, even folks who historically might not have been able to help have rallied to bring people to and from care.”

In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Elizabeth Hancy, executive director, Angel Flight South Central
  • Bret Heinrich, president and CEO, Wings of Hope
  • Rol Murrow, chair and co-founder, Air Care Alliance
  • Gina Russo, executive director, Corporate Angel Network
  • NBAA Flight Plan is sponsored by Whiting Aviation Park, ready to grow your business in Santa Rosa County, FL.
