Volunteering an aircraft for VAC missions
Many of the plane owners who volunteer with us are also pilots who welcome the opportunity to perform a valuable service while maintaining their proficiency. Some owners come from military backgrounds themselves; others are seasoned aviators or simply passionate about flying. But they all have one thing in common - the desire to serve those who have served us.
In the interest of safety as well as camaraderie, the VAC encourages two rated pilots to fly together when practical.
Corporate aircraft & fractional ownership aircraft Volunteering the use of a plane is an outstanding way for businesses to demonstrate their patriotism and put available resources to work for a good cause. For companies involved in fractional aircraft ownership programs, it's an excellent use of unused flying hours.
