The Annual SoCal Fly-In on July 16 at McClellan Palomar Airport (Carlsbad) was a huge success! Over 40 AFW volunteers, pilots and soon to be pilot members, and staff attended to network and learn more about Angel Flight West. A highlight of the meeting/luncheon included passenger Santiago and his mom Irma’s testimonials, which aired on the Saturday CBS Channel 8 news.

At the end of the day, pilots were recruited and excitement was created about the current AFW Camp Season and upcoming Golf Fundraiser on October 21 in Dana Point. Photos include: Vince, SoCal Wing Leader, plus Rock and Genevieve Lavin, who planned the event.
