Angel Flight
 - Helping ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances

I am regularly flying for Angel Flight Central.  We take people with a medical and financial need to the location where they can get the medical attention they need.  Recently I have transported patients to their appointments at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, the University of Kansas Medical Center and Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, and the Mayo clinic in Rochester MN.  There is no charge to the passengers for these flights.  All costs are borne by the participating pilots.

If you are a pilot with a Private Pilot's license and at least 500 hours of flying experience or a Commercial Pilot's license regardless of flight experience, you can join me in this venture.  An instrument rating is desired but is not required.

If your are not a pilot meeting these criteria but you would still like to help these people, we have lots more volunteer options.  For my Midwwest friends, check out to see all of the volunteer opportunities.  If you live outside of the Midwest, contact us through the same website and we will connect you with Angel Flight organization for your area.

And if you just want to join me on a mission, contact me.

EAA Young Eagles
 - Free flights for kids from 8 to 18

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) believes that all kids should have the opportunity to experience flying in a small plane.  So the Lee's Summit Chapter 91 invites all kids out once each month for this experience.

We start with a pancake breakfast ($5 donation requested) and then fly 20-30 minute flights for all kids on a first-come, first-served basis.  Some of our aircraft will carry one passenger, some will carry three passengers.  There is no charge for the flight - all costs are borne by the participating pilots.

We to fly on the third Saturday every month at the Lee's Summit Airport, beginning in April, and running through October.  Call if you have questions..
