Group pilot photo planned at EAA AirVenture
Fly4Life hopes to gather 1,000 volunteer pilots for a group photo to celebrate the weeklong Fly4Life activities coordinated by Air Care Alliance and EAA AirVenture 2009.

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 Worldwide theme.

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 aviation.

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 several volunteer pilots on the AirVenture website.
