Volunteer Pilot Cycles Across U.S. to Raise Funds and Awareness for Angel Flight West
Date:5/9/2013

Manhattan Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 09, 2013

On May 12, Angel Flight West (AFW) volunteer pilot and board member, Charlie Finkel, a 62-year-old aviation attorney and private pilot, will embark on a “bucket list” bike ride from Manhattan Beach to Boston—approximately 3,400 miles—to raise funds and awareness for the nonprofit. Angel Flight West arranges free non-emergency air travel for children and adults with serious medical conditions and other compelling needs. Mr. Finkel has been flying such missions for two decades.

“Cycling has been my hobby and passion since childhood, so has flying. I have been very fortunate to have been able to engage in both. As a pilot, I have been able to pay back some of my blessings by twenty years of membership in Angel Flight West,” Mr. Finkel said.

In the first few days following the announcement of his plans, Mr. Finkel garnered pledges exceeding $10,000. He hopes to complete this fund-raising effort by June 28.

“I have been very fortunate to be able to enjoy the physical ability, good health and financial security. Unfortunately, all too many suffer illnesses, disabilities and a lack of resources preventing them from obtaining all the help they need. Fortunately, Angel Flight West helps to overcome those hardships,” Mr. Finkel said.

He has transported burned children to summer camps, and has flown missions for cancer patients, wounded soldiers and others with a wide variety of needs. He said, “I particularly associate with the burn victims, having spent two months of suffering in a burn ward myself, and then having to overcoming the hurdles of rehabilitation.”

Mr. Finkel plans regular
