With ‘Pilots Itching To Get Out And Fly,’ Montgomery County-Based Nonprofit Delivering PPE To Northeast Rural Hospitals

The details are finalized.  “Tomorrow’s mission has 14 planes,” Angel Flight East pilot Adam Zucker said.  The gear is loaded.

“I think the pilots are itching to get out and fly,” Angel Flight East Outreach Director Jess Ames said. On Thursday, rural hospitals from New York to Ohio are getting much-needed help. Ames says the help includes 3,600 pounds of hand sanitizer and 3,500 face shields.

The flights are taking off from Wings Field in Blue Bell, home to Angel Flight East. “The mission of Angel Flight East is essentially to coordinate air travel for folks who need medical care far from home on private aircraft all free of charge,” Zucker said. “COVID-19 has changed all that.”
