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 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.

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.

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.

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

Weekend days are best and on occasion, may be available for weekday day missions provided I have enough advance notice and personal time.

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

I am based at KPOU (Poughkeepsie, NY). I can comfortably fly the New England area (+/- 300 nm) and to NJ, MD and PA.

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

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.
