Angel Flight West Recognizes Southern California Pilots at 24th Anniversary
Date:10/9/2007

MONTEREY, Calif., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Angel Flight West (AFW) awarded The Distinguished Pilot award to Encino resident Steve Danz at AFW's 24th Anniversary Awards on Saturday, September 29th. Danz completed 82 AFW missions over the past year. As an AFW pilot, Steve flies people in need whose non-emergency health care problems require that they travel to and from medical facilities. Danz, like all AFW volunteer pilots, donates the cost of all the missions he flies.

Four Southern Californian pilots receiving the Wingman Award include Jim Mallen (San Marcos), Jon Wells (Corona), George Morse (Pine Mountain Club), and Randy Henry (Northridge). Combined, these pilots generously flew 143 missions. These volunteer pilots are just five of 505 Southern California pilots who in the aggregate have flown over 940 missions this year totaling 2,350 hours of volunteer flying, 282,000 miles flown and $517,000.00 in volunteer pilot in-kind donated costs.

Also receiving special recognition was Paul Jacobs (Pasadena), Doug Griffith (La Canada), and Alan Dias (La Canada). Jacobs was awarded the first Legacy Award for his extensive support, sacrifice, and commitment to AFW during his 20 plus years with the organization. Jacobs has served as pilot, chairman of the board, foundation board member, and major financial supporter. Griffith accepted the Wings of Excellence award for his development of a Disaster Relief program where AFW assists with governmental agencies in the event of a National crisis. Dias is the Southern California Wing Leader for AFW and was awarded The Test Pilot award for his initiative to create regional area leaders within Southern California to help recruit pilots and spread awareness for AFW.

The Golden Halo award for Southern California went to Robert Butler and the Emanuel Bachmann Foundation. AFW relies solely on donor support to arrange transportation for those in need. Generous gifts from organizations like the Emanuel Bachman Foundation make free flights possible.

Executive Director Michael Nanko recognizes the valuable support from the entire Southern California Wing of AFW. He says, "The flights and services donated by our Southern California pilots and donors are invaluable. These pilots of purpose who fly out of passion and their compassion to help those in need are impressive. With the combined efforts of all these remarkable individuals, Angel Flight West has become the charitable aviation organization of choice in Southern California and has made a difference in thousands of lives."
