Please advise us of any preferences with respect to animal rescue missions. Do you prefer to assist with certain types of animals, certain sizes of animals, one animal at a time, etc.?

I don't have any experience with these kinds of flights so I don't have a preference at this time.

Pilots, what are your ratings, flight hours and do you rent or own? What type of plane(s) will you be flying on ARF rescue missions? Please measure your cargo area and note it in your profile. We'll take this into consideration in flight planning.

Private pilot, with an instrument rating. 379 total PIC hours. Do not own, but have access to rented and Civil Air Patrol Cessna 172s and 182s. There is sufficient room is the back seat to hold a fair sized animal cage

Do you have certain days of the week that are best for ARF rescue missions? (Weekdays, weekends, days, nights?)

My work schedule if pretty flexible so I can do weekday flights with some notice. Otherwise weekend days and nights are okay.

Where are you based (airport code)? What distance are you willing to fly/drive when assisting with ARF rescue missions?

Based out of Westchester County airport - KHPN. I would be willing to fly a 300 mile round trip.

In what ways can you assist ARF? As Pilot, Planning Assistance, Temporary Home Stays, Ground Transportation?

As pilot, I may be able to also provide temporary home stays.


Rocco Cipriano - I'm a private pilot, member of the Civil Air Patrol and have a great dog - a chow/retriever mix named Cassidy, who we adopted from Pet Rescue. I own an marketing consulting firm and work with a number of aviation related companies.
