VLJ for transport wounded warriors

The Veterans Airlift Command (VAC), based in St. Louis Park, Minnesota announced  at NBAA the receipt of a donated Eclipse Jet to benefit the Veterans  Airlift Command.

The VAC provides free air  transportation to post 9/11 combat wounded veterans and their families for  medical and other compassionate purposes through a national network of volunteer  aircraft owners and pilots. They rely solely on the contributions of donors for  finances, aircraft, and pilot services.
The VAC received a donation  of an Eclipse Jet Aircraft earlier this month, and to compliment the donation,  the jet manufacturer Eclipse Aerospace has agreed to upgrade the aircraft to  Total Eclipse standards and return the aircraft to active service. The VAC will  use the aircraft in their mission of transporting wounded veterans and their  families to locations in which they can receive proper medical care.
