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.”
