AFW volunteers, Command Pilot Georgia Griffiths and Mission Assistant Colleen Kendall, will provide a pilot briefing on AFW’s good work and great volunteer pilot opportunities.
Georgia Griffiths, founder of G2 Software Systems, Inc., learned to fly ten years ago during a self-proclaimed midlife crisis. She actively volunteers in many capacities for Angel Flight West and as a pilot for LightHawk, which champions environmental protection through the unique perspective of flight. Georgia owns a 2007 Cirrus SR22 GT3 and has flown over 25 missions for Angel Flight West. "I love to fly and I love to help people. I'm going to fly anyway, so why not do both? And at the end of the year, I appreciate the tax benefit of helping through Angel Flight West," says AFW Command Pilot, Georgia Griffiths.
Would you help a small child, ravaged by cancer, who needs specialized lifesaving treatment at a hospital 300 miles away. A father, separated from his family by a hurricane, who wants desperately to be reunited. A domestic-violence survivor longs to start a new life in another city, but who cannot afford to leave. These are just a few of the people we help…and give hope.
More than 10,000 times a year the phone rings at Angel Flight West’s Santa Monica headquarters to request such a flight – a flight of hope.
Each request is someone seeking access to care and treatment that requires transportation they won’t have unless AFW can match them with a private pilot willing to donate a free flight – a flight of hope.
