Cessna Mustang Flight Aims To Raise Money For Make-A-Wish
Aircraft management and
charter provider 26 North Aviation announced Thursday it will
support Jared Isaacman in his attempt to set a world speed record.
Isaacman, 25, intends to raise money and awareness for The
Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey by beating the current record
for circumnavigating the globe in a light aircraft.
26 North Aviation is assisting Isaacman in his efforts by
sponsoring a website that will allow visitors to make donations to
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey. The company says
sponsoring this website is an opportunity for 26 North Aviation to
encourage aviation enthusiasts around the world, and to contribute
to a notable charitable organization.
Isaacman plans to pilot a Cessna Citation Mustang on the record
"We will have accurate information on weather, temperature and
winds, which are all essential to navigating a long distance in the
shortest time possible," Isaacman said. "There is no better way to
test the systems and capabilities of a new generation and
sophisticated aircraft like the Mustang without throwing all the
world has to offer against it. Attempting a world speed record will
allow our team to accomplish this goal and also raise money and
awareness for The Make-A-Wish Foundation."
"Supporting Jared Isaacman and his
crew in an effort to break the current world speed record is an
absolute pleasure," added Walter Garner, President, 26 North
Aviation. "As a pilot and President of 26 North Aviation I can
appreciate what this record means, both for the individuals who
will accomplish it and the philanthropic cause that it is
supporting. We are also very proud that the new generation Citation
510 Mustang Aircraft attempting this record-breaking adventure is
currently part of our charter fleet."
