Pilots n Paws-Animal Rescue

  • Manassas Airport

    10600 Harry Parrish Boulevard, Manassas, VA (map)

    38.726631 -77.516980

  • Hi, I belong to an organization called Pilots n Paws, it is a non-profit dedicated to removing animals from shelters and getting them to foster and permanent homes. Saturday, the 15th, at 0800 we will be flying from Manassas to Logan WV, picking up a boxer, then dropping him off in Martinsburg WV. I was wondering if there is a dog/aviation lover that might want to join me to help out, since I have not done this before (dog rescue, not flying) and would appreciate an extra pair of hands so the only thing I have to do is concentrate on flying. I am instrument rated and fly a Piper Archer, trip time should be around 5 hours or so.

    Thanks, Bill

    Hi all,
    I just got an email that the receiving party did not send the adoption fee (which has me miffed on a number of levels, not the least of which that sort of thing should have been taken care of prior to scheduling the trip) so the shelter is not releasing the dog. I am trying to see if there might be a similar duration trip in the area at the last minute. Hopefully I will be able to provide greater details and more advance notice in the future. Thanks for all the replies.

    How much is expected from passengers as far as fuel cost?

    December 14, 2012

    • Bill

      Hi Ian, I was not going to charge anything since this is not a typical "touristy" type of flight.

    Can you host additional people? My friend and I would be interested - we are pet lovers!

      Hi Kajal, Currently I have one available seat, I am waiting to hear back from some others who were the first to be "wait listed". I am new at this, so not exactly sure what the meet up protocol is, but if I don't hear from anyone will certainly let you know. I am hoping to do these flights in the future also and will keep you in mind if it does not work out this time. Or until I talk my wife into letting me have a bigger plane, then I can take everyone!

      As of this morning I now have two seats available.

    I'm interested, I have a Piper Cherokee and am based out at HEF. I can make Saturday, please keep me posted....!!!!

      Hi Carol, Saturday is the day. Are you still interested in going? I think you were one of the first responders...sent you an email but not entirely sure it went through.

    OK, looks like we are aiming for 0800 Saturday.
    We can meet at the Manassas Main Terminal (big brick building with flags in front) lobby and go from there.
    Carol and Victoria-I am hoping to do these flights on a recurring basis, maybe we could do one in the future? There are plenty of "trips needed" on the ride board.
