hopes to gather 1,000 volunteer pilots for a group photo to celebrate the
weeklong Fly4Life activities coordinated by Air Care Alliance and EAA
EAA AirVenture is promoting and recognizing
the humanitarian efforts of those pilots who volunteer their time for
public benefit and mission operations. This year's event will be honoring
those efforts through the Fly4Life: General Aviation Serving People
Volunteer pilots and aircraft owners can
register at the Fly4Life tent on the south side of AeroShell Square. Upon
registration, the pilot will receive a badge for themselves and a prop
card for their airplane to show their contribution to public benefit
On Friday, July 31, all registered Fly4Life
pilots will gather at AeroShell Square, at approximately at 10:45 a.m. for
a group photo. In addition, the weeklong event will feature forum
speakers, Theater in the Woods presentations, aerial and static displays
and an exhibit tent at AeroShell Square.
Public benefit aviation includes those who
transport medical patients, rescue operations, participants in
conservation, youth, education and organ transport flights and more.
Mission operations include international flights in demanding weather
conditions, unconventional airstrips, and varying worldly cultures.
Mission pilots and mechanics use aviation to spread religious support
throughout the world in under developed countries. Read profiles of
