We Are Here For YOU!
PALS would not be where we are today without the support of our members, and we cannot thank you enough for all that you have done. We can, however, work hard to make this the most enjoyable volunteer experience you’ve ever had…we just need a little more help from you in order to make that possible.
PALS Pilot Survey
We are conducting a survey to better streamline our Mission Coordination process andimprove the ways in which we interact with our volunteers.
If you have not yet responded to the survey sent last week via email, could you please take a few moments to complete the survey at the link included below?
PLEASE NOTE: The survey will close on Friday, April 10, 2015 at 5:00 PM.We are excited to share the results with you in our next newsletter – Stay tuned!
Air Care Alliance Conference 2015
We will be attending the annual Air Care Alliance Conference later this month in San Antonio, TX. This is a great opportunity for us to discuss trends, concerns, and best practices within the volunteer pilot community. If there are topics you would like for us to address or discuss while we are there, please contact Jen Hotsko.

Would you like to be a PALS Pilot Ambassador?
Fly-in and aviation event season is upon us! While we would love to attend every event that is happening within our coverage area, it just isn’t possible due to geographic constraints and availability of staff members. We would like to develop a group of PALS Pilot Ambassadors to help us get more “feet on the street”. Would you be interested in toting some PALS brochures, a few talking points, sporting some PALS gear, and helping to spread the word about PALS to pilots that might be interested in signing up to help patients access the medical treatment they need?
Getting started is easy – just contact our Pilot Coordinator, Jen Hotsko by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (516-640-7200) for details!
Additionally, we are looking to add more events to our calendar of aviation-related outreach activities. Is there an event that you think we should try to attend? Perhaps it is an annual convention specific to make/model, a long running fly-in breakfast that typically attracts a big crowd, or some other event that you’ve enjoyed. Send Jen Hotsko the details and we’ll see if we can be there!
Are you going to Sun n’ Fun 2015?
If you are heading to Sun n’ Fun in the Spring, don’t forget to pack a PALS Shirt and Hat! PALS will not have a booth at Sun n’ Fun this year, but we hope that we can count on you to help spread the word about your experiences as a PALS Pilot! Wearing PALS gear at an aviation event as large and well attended as Sun n’ Fun, can easily lead to conversations with fellow pilots that might be interested in becoming more involved with PALS!
If you would like some extra brochures or need a PALS shirt to pack for your trip, contact Pilot Coordinator, Jen Hotsko, at least 5-7 business days before your planned departure to allow time for shipping. Safe travels!
