Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (09.22.14)

"Volunteers in aviation and those who support them are the heart and soul of charitable aviation, and the work they perform is invaluable. They fly needy patients for care, inspire youth by providing the unique perspective of their world from above, swiftly transport relief supplies and personnel following disasters, support environmental preservation work, relocate animals to new environments, and perform a myriad of other tasks. They all deserve to be honored with national recognition and these awards support that goal. When we honor one we honor all!"
