WINGS FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS PROGRAM TAKES OFF

Local 2507 Among First Tour Flight Recipients

Morristown, New Jersey, February 2022

Alpha Aviation, Inc., is pleased to announce our intent of providing complimentary NYC sightseeing tour flights for the essential workers who helped us pull through the pandemic. Our leadership has decided to call these flights “Wings for Essential Workers“.

These Wings for Essential Workers flights will operate from Republic Airport in Farmingdale, New York as well as Morristown Municipal Airport in Morristown, New Jersey. Our intent is to schedule three aviation days for Local 2507, with 6 flights each day. Two people can join on each flight, for a total of 36 Essential Workers receiving such an experience.

“The mission of Alpha Aviation’s Wings for Essential Workers Program is to do more than just communicate ‘thank you for your service’ to our heroes, but, to honor our heroes, by providing this exciting and unique experience for our essential workers” says Kelvin King, CEO of Alpha Aviation, Inc.

In order for the flights to occur, Alpha Aviation will depend on the community to sponsor each flight. Sponsorships are welcomed by individuals and corporations. To ensure sponsors receive the maximum benefit of funding these critically important flights, Alpha Aviation, Inc., will partner with the Sandra Blake Memorial Scholarship Foundation, a 501(c)3, to ensure eligible tax benefits for generous donations are honored.
