Hometown: Fishkill, NY
September 14, 2009
I would prefer to rescue small to medium sized dogs and small cats. I can manage a couple at a time. I will be using my plane which is a Piper Warrior that has adequate rear seat and baggage capacity. I will need to find a travel cage to fit.
ASEL Private Pilot with Instrument Rating with 500+ hours total time. I own my own plane (PA28-161 Piper Warrior II) that I will use on rescue missions.
Weekend days are best and on occasion, may be available for weekday day missions provided I have enough advance notice and personal time.
I am based at KPOU (Poughkeepsie, NY). I can comfortably fly the New England area (+/- 300 nm) and to NJ, MD and PA.
I would like to fly missions as PIC. I can also support other Pilots as Co-Pilot. With advance notice and available time (I also fly missions for Angel Flight East), I may be able to provide ground transportation as well (+/- 60 miles).
My family and I have been active volunteers at local animal shelters and find the time we spend there personally rewarding. I would like to use my flying skills and resources to help rescue animals that are in need.
