Performance Flight trains “angels” for a discount


Performance Flight, a flight school at the Westchester County Airport, is offering discounts to pilots from Angel Flight NE, which offers free flights to people who need medical care in distant hospitals and medical centers.

Pilots can receive training and rent aircraft from Performance Flight at a discount. The flight center’s experienced instructors can even serve as mentors for Angel Flight volunteers.

Performance Flight president and chief executive Lewis Liebert, sees it as more than an opportunity to help people get the medical care they need. He sees it also as a way to ensure that the pilots flying above Westchester and the area receive more training and experience — and that’s a help to everyone up there.

“It’s a great way to give a pilot a mission-based goal,” Leibert said. “They want to go fly (and) they want to do something great while they fly.”
