Support Angel Flight West

Calling All Pilots

We all have many reasons for flying. For most of us our aircraft become time machines whisking us to distant places for an afternoon, a weekend or a place we can’t get to without hours of driving. Whatever the reason flying is our passion and it gives us great pleasure.

Angel Flight West is in need of your time and your time machines. Angel Flight West arranges transportation for individuals and families in need of specialized care. The needs are many, “it’s a 5 hour round trip in my car every other day for chemotherapy” or “my immune system is so weak from my treatments commercial air travel is out of the question”, or “I can’t afford the expense”.

Angel Flight West is looking for pilots who want to do more with their passion for flying. In your time machine as an Angel Flight Command Pilot you will be able to help individuals and families meet their special needs. Come to a one-hour presentation at Coast Flight Training Saturday, March 29 at 10 A.M., to learn about Angel Flight West, their mission, and hear the personal stories from Command Pilots. Please respond by email if you would like to attend this presentation.

By EAA Staff

Larry Lee Whitesitt of Fairfield, Wash., was honored with the FAA’s Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award signifying 50 years of safe, violation-free flying - many as a bush pilot in Canada’s Northwest Territory. Minard Thompson, FAASTeam program manager at the Spokane FSDO, presented the award at the Chapter 79 Christmas party held in December.

Larry, who at age 75 is current and still flies, has authored three books, including two recounting his bush flying experiences. The first recounts what he calls his all-time favorite airplane, Flight of the Red Beaver: A Yukon Bush Pilot Adventure. The second book is Northern Flight of Dreams: Flying Adventures in British Columbia, Yukon, NW Territories and Alaska. He also wrote Higher than Eagles: Spokane’s World War II Pilots in tribute to the heroes of WWII.
