David Hopkins is a command pilot for Angel Flight West in the Northern California Wing. He is passionate about volunteering for AFW “not only because of the needs that it serves, but also because it is so rewarding to be closely in touch with the people you are trying to help.” Check out David’s awesome testimonial video below to learn more about why he chooses to donate his time, resources and flying skills as an Angel Flight West pilot.
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.
