Jet Aviation Continues Support For Able Flight

Fourth Consecutive Scholarship Presented At NBAA2009

A donation to Able Flight from Jet Aviation, which will fund scholarships for 2010, was presented during NBAA2009 in Orlando, Florida last week.  Charles Stites, Executive Director of Able Flight, accepted on behalf of the organization. The gift was presented by Robert Seidel, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Jet Aviation Business Jets, and a member of the Able Flight Advisory Board.
 
Jet Aviation is a founding partner of Able Flight, which, since its inception in 2006, has awarded 25 flight training scholarships to people with physical disabilities. In 2006 and 2008, Able Flight was recognized with grants from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation to further its programs.  Jet Aviation is one of Able Flight's original corporate sponsors and was the first company to have an Able Flight scholarship in its name.

"With our industry's renewed focus on the fundamentals of business aviation, and the recent tough economic challenges it has faced, it is important to remember that serious challenges of another kind are faced every day by people with disabilities," said Seidel, "At Jet Aviation, we hope we can help remove some of these obstacles, and in 2010, allow some of them to achieve new, meaningful goals through flight. We are proud to be associated with them."

"From the beginning, our partnership with Jet Aviation has enabled people with spinal cord injuries,  disabilities caused by birth defects, and wounded and disabled veterans to use the challenge of becoming a pilot to profoundly change their lives, said Stites. "With their support for 2010, Jet Aviation has once again shown its commitment to our unique mission, and we are honored to continue this valued partnership."
