Give Hope Wings Volunteer Pilot Trip
Pilot opportunity: Join fellow pilots, the remarkable Give Hope Wings Squadron
Pilots – here’s an opportunity to fly with a unique and dedicated group of Canadian Pilots this summer. You don’t have to be a super-pilot, or a wealthy one, to take the opportunity to log this one-off aviation experience!
We expect to form up squadrons of 25 or more aircraft for many portions of this 3000 nm grand flying expedition across Western Canada.
Join for one leg – or many legs – or all of them. You’ll become part of a select group of pilots which, when it reaches and surpasses its goal of raising $400,000, will fund more than 1600 free medical flights for Canadians. How cool is that?
The expedition will provide you with an opportunity to give back to others while experiencing the flying adventure of a lifetime. We’ll launch from Boundary Bay, BC on August 23rd, fly to Churchill, MB and return 12 days later on September 3rd – with many unforgettable sights and stops along the way.
Legs that are in the vicinity if Saskatchewan: Maple Creek, Yorkton, Red Deer, Saskatoon, Drumheller, Flin Flon, Thompson…!!!
Our Expedition Supporting Pilots will:
- Fly all or part of the expedition in support of patients in need (flights anywhere between 100 & 3,000 nm).
- Challenge themselves to raise a minimum of $1 per nautical mile flown. (Hope Air staff will set up a fundraising page for each participating pilot on our website).
- Raise a minimum of $1,000 for Hope Air from a combination of their own donations, sponsors they may attract, and (tax-deductible) donations from family & friends on their fundraising pages. (This amount will cover two return flights for a patient – or a return flight for a child and a parent).
- Cover their own accommodation, meals and flight expenses (note: some flight costs will be discounted along the way)
