Little Wings Patient Flight – Donated By Skypac Aviation
- Patient Flight: 24-June-2013
- Location: Moruya
This story comes straight from the Little Wings website. Skypac is a proud supporter of Little Wings.
Our flight to Moruya had some very challenging weather conditions this week. Very wet & windy with freezing conditions from 5000ft, and with the Malibu in for scheduled maintenance we needed some help so we could bring Ryan and his mum Nicole up from Moruya.
Our luck was in and Rick Pegus from Skypac Aviation jumped to our rescue with a beautiful Citation Mustang. Not only did Rick donate the use of this amazing aircraft, but he also put 2 highly experienced pilots up front for us.
We were also pleased to have Tanya Davies – MP for Mulgoa along for the ride to learn more about how she can help Little Wings. Tanya has been an incredible support through our journey and is truly a wonderful person with a heart of gold.
A short 30minute flight at 20,000ft to pick up Ryan & his mum, then a quick flight back to Bankstown was a much faster and safer alternative to the 6 hour drive this family normally makes on a regular basis. Our very best wishes to Ryan as he continues his battle with cancer, and we look forward to seeing them again when they are ready to return home hopefully in a few weeks.
A BIG thank you to Skypac for their amazing support to help this family.
