Aero Linx: Air Care Alliance
Public benefit flying organizations utilize the unique capabilities of General Aviation aircraft to lend a hand whenever rapid and safe air transportation is needed to make health care accessible, save lives, or otherwise serve the public. Individual organizations with this mission have been in existence for decades, but in 1990 the need to share resources and coordinate efforts became clear. At that time AIR MED 90, the first national conference of public benefit flying organizations, was organized by Bill Worden, one of our founders. Thus was born the Air Care Alliance.
