Angel Flight Southeast, a provider of free air transportation to individuals with medical or humanitarian needs has been chosen by PlaneViz, an aircraft classifieds website and aviation blog, to raise $5,000 towards its charitable 24/7 operation.
“We are very excited to be sponsored by PlaneViz,” says Angel Flight Southeast CEO and Volunteer Pilot, Steve Purello. “Our organization depends entirely on the support of donors and volunteers. The funds raised through our partnership with PlaneViz will allow us to continue our critical mission”
Through the partnership, PlaneViz will donate the first month’s listing fee of each classified ad to Angel Flight Southeast. The program will run for at least six months or until achieving the $5,000 goal.
“Fundraising is an ongoing challenge faced by smaller not-for-profit organizations”
For over 29 years, Angel Flight Southeast has been coordinating free air transportation for children and adults with medical or compelling humanitarian needs. The group averages 3,000 missions per year in the six southeast states with the support of 650 pilots and 300 volunteers.
PlaneViz was launched earlier this year to bring fun and function to aircraft classifieds. The site home page uses location awareness to provide geo-targeted display of aircraft for sale and offers a simple, search-based interface to locate aircraft anywhere. The PlaneViz blog covers aviation topics and history with original articles and photos.
"Our goal is to add 250 to 500 aircraft to the site to raise $5,000 for Angel Flight Southeast," Goodwin said. “By purchasing a $10 or $20 upgrade to the standard, free listing, aircraft sellers get exposure on our home page, help support people in need, and promote general aviation; everyone wins."
PlaneViz is an aviation web site featuring aircraft classified ads and an aviation blog. Among its unique features are its philanthropic business model, distinctive look, and Freemium pricing model.
