The Air Care Alliance is holding its annual conference on the East Coast this year and public benefit pilots will meet April 21-22 on Long Island, New York. Patient Airlift Services is hosting the event and there are plenty of topics of interest who donate their time and aircraft to help others. “We cover current and upcoming regulatory issues affecting public benefit flying such as how the BasicMed process may affect volunteer pilots and their groups; a major session on what is legal and what is not regarding fuel reimbursement policies and the use of group-owned aircraft by volunteer pilots,” the organization said in a news release.
After a day of seminars, delegates will be treated to a gala at the Cradle of Aviation Museum with dinner and drinks. Organizers say it’s important for volunteer groups to stay up on the rules and to interact with each other for ideas and input. “You and your board and staff members will join other leaders and staff from many established and new public benefit flying groups who believe that we all benefit from the goodwill and mutual support gained from working together and learning from one another,” the group said.
