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:
