“Watsonville ‘Angel’ Pilots Kid to Camp”

This past weekend pilots flew campers to Camp Pacifica, a camp for deaf and hard of hearing children and their siblings. 18 volunteer pilots flew kids from various airports across California to the Atwater Airport (MER) in Merced, CA to drop them off for camp. One of our AFW pilots, Rayvon Williams, took Donna Jones, Santa Cruz Sentinel staff writer, along as his mission assistant. Donna met Ravyon’s passenger and flew along with them to get the full Angel Flight West experience. Check out (link included below) Donna’s great article on the flight itself and the true importance of volunteer flying.
