Spreading the word about Angel's Wings in Astoria Oregon

We had the opportunity to get out and spread the word to both pilots and animal lovers in the Astoria and Seaside Oregon areas over this last weekend. Our first stop was at the Astoria Regional Airport (KAST) to talk with the staff at the FBO. The Port of Astoria manages the small FBO and has fuel, coffee, snacks and a warm smile to all that walk through their door. The staff was more than happy to talk about what we do and offer to help spread the word amongst the local pilot community. There has traditionally been a shortage of pilots that are able to link Northern California to Oregon during relay type of transport missions and we hope to close this gap!

We also tried to talk with pilots in the Seaside area but the Seaside Municipal Airport (56S) is a small airport with a large gate that restricts admission to those that don’t have an access code. Go figure that we would show up when the airport was quiet and mostly unattended. Even though the airport was a bust, we found that everywhere we looked we found people walking dogs around town. We handed out a couple of dozen flyers and made some good contacts in the local community.

Help us spread the word! Download one of the flyers and pass it around to your friends!

Mission Pilots Needed!

We are in need of volunteer pilots in Northern California and Central Oregon!

It is our plan to make routine flights between Seattle and the Los Angeles area in the near future but until that can happen, we need your help. In the past two weeks alone we have had 5 dogs that we were unable to move because there weren’t any pilots that could bridge the gap between Sacramento and anywhere in Oregon.

If you are a pilot that would like to help and possibly receive a tax benefit for helping a 501(c)3 non-profit, get in touch with us and your information will be entered in our database for future missions.

The one question remaining would be…… Who can be a mission pilot?

While we are currently focusing on the animal transportation, we also assist with patients,Soldiers and blood products so we do have varying standards of training and certification.

Animal Transport – Student Pilot Certificate or Higher

Patients / Soldiers – 250 Hours of PIC and Instrument Rating or Commercial Pilot Certificate

Blood Products / Organs – 250 Hours Total Time
