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.
