Flight Options Owners Donate
10 Fractional Hours to Corporate Angel Network
Sixth Straight Year of Support for Cancer Patients
White Plains, NY—(Jan. 10, 2007)—Corporate Angel Network (CAN),
the national non-profit organization that provides free air transportation
for cancer patients by using empty seats on corporate and fractional
aircraft, announced today that Flight Options, LLC, a leading provider
of fractional shares in business aircraft and a Raytheon Company,
donated ten hours of fractional jet flight time to CAN on behalf
of its owners. This is the sixth straight year that Flight Options
has donated flight time to CAN.
“We are pleased to have provided CAN this gift on behalf of our
owners. These hours will be used to fly the most critical in need
or auctioned off through charity to raise funds for those in need.
Either way — those in need are winners,” said S. Michael Scheeringa,
Flight Options’ Chief Operating Executive.
“The continued and generous donations from Flight Options owners
clearly increases the number of flights we are able to offer to
cancer patients who need to travel for treatment,” said Peter Fleiss,
Corporate Angel Network’s Executive Director. “These flights often
make a critical and lasting difference in the lives of our patients.
Flight Options was the first fractional ownership program to join
Corporate Angel Network, and we are delighted that they continue
to support our efforts.”
